Elijah Moore Named Walter Camp All-America

Elijah Moore Named Walter Camp All-America

OXFORD, Miss. – Ole Miss wide receiver Elijah Moore has earned his fourth All-American honor, being named first team All-America by the Walter Camp Football Foundation Thursday.

Moore, who has also been named first team by the AFCA, the Associated Press and Sporting News, is the 13th consensus All-American in Ole Miss football history — the first since defensive back Senquez Golson in 2014.

Moore is currently No. 1 in the country in receiving yards per game (149.1) and receptions per game (10.8). The Florida native is No. 18 nationally with eight receiving touchdowns and No. 12 in all-purpose yards (158.3 ypg).

Moore has also etched his name in the Ole Miss record books, ranking No. 3 in single-season receiving yards (1,193 yards), just 127 yards short of A.J. Brown’s 1,320 yards in 2018. Moore, a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award, ended the 2020 season — one in which he decided to forgo the final two games to concentrate on preparations for the NFL Draft — just a mere 13 catches short of Laquon Treadwell’s career mark of 202 receptions.

He notched 10 or more receptions in seven of the Rebels’ eight games this season.

In the Ole Miss career record book, Moore finished tied for third in receptions (189), No. 4 in receiving yardage (2,441) and No. 6 in receiving touchdowns (16). He’s the only Rebel in school history to surpass the 200-yard receiving mark three times in a career, all of which came in 2020 for the junior.
