Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor got another great honor Wednesday.

The electric runner was named an AFCA First Team All-American after another dominating season for the Badgers. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

This comes after he was already named an AP First Team All-American.

Stack them up, Jonathan! Stack them all up! He deserves every single award that comes his way. He’s not just a really good running back.

He’s one of the greatest runners I’ve ever seen, and he’s probably the most complete back in Wisconsin history.

Given our rich tradition of running the ball, that’s sure saying a lot.

He’s got the speed, his vision is at an elite level and his most impressive asset is his patience when it comes to waiting for holes to open up.

As a Wisconsin man, I couldn’t be prouder of the way Taylor plays the game and the way he conducts himself on and off the field.

He’s everything we want in a Badgers star.

Congrats to Taylor on getting a bunch of awards and honors. He’s earned every single one.
