Hargreaves a first-team All-american

Florida junior CB Vernon Hargreaves was named an Associated Press first-team All-American, it was announced Sunday. It's another in a long list of honors garnered by the former Wharton High standout, who last week was named first-team All-SEC and first-team Walter Camp All-American. Hargreaves, who was second team last year, announced after the SEC championship game that he is leaving UF early to enter the NFL draft. Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry of Alabama and finalists Deshaun Watson of Clemson and Christian McCaffrey of Stanford also made the first team. LSU's Leonard Fournette joined Henry as first-team running backs. Florida State RB Dalvin Cook and CB Jalen Ramsey were named to the second team, and Florida DT Jon Bullard made the third team. Oklahoma senior linebacker and Armwood High alumnus Eric Striker made the second team. (Full list of All-America teams in For the Record, this page).

MISSISSIPPI: Police said Mississippi DT Robert Nkemdiche was hospitalized after falling from a wall at an Atlanta hotel. Police said it appears Nkemdiche, 21, broke a hotel room window, walked about 15 feet, climbed over a wall and fell roughly 15 feet late Saturday night. Nkemdiche was taken to an Atlanta hospital and is in stable condition. Authorities found what appeared to be a small amount of marijuana in Nkemdiche's room. The 6-foot-4, 296-pound Nkemdiche, a junior, was selected to the AP All-America second team.

MORE FOOTBALL: East Carolina hired Duke offensive coordinator Scottie Montgomery as its head coach, the school announced.

ALPINE SKIING: Petra Vlhova of Slovakia took advantage of American Mikaela Shiffrin's absence to win the first World Cup race of her career by taking a slalom in Are, Sweden. Vlhova won by 0.59 seconds over Sweden's Frida Hansdotter. Shiffrin, the Olympic and two-time world champion, flew home to the United States for tests on her right knee after crashing while warming up for Saturday's giant slalom race.

SPEEDSKATING: American Heather Richardson-Bergsma edged Brittany Bowe of Ocala to win the women's 1,500 meters at the World Cup event in Heerenveen, Netherlands.
