Missouri defensive end Shane Ray missed a shot at going two for two on All-America teams Tuesday.

The Associated Press released its annual team, one of five used by the NCAA to determine unanimous and consensus status, and Ray was left off the first team. He received second-team honors along with Kansas State’s Tyler Lockett, who was chosen as an all-purpose player.

The AP team is the second of the five major All-America teams. Ray was chosen first team at defensive end on the first, picked by the Walter Camp Football Foundation. The Sporting News, American Football Coaches Association and Football Writers Association of America have yet to release their teams.

Ray can no longer achieve unanimous All-America status but can reach consensus status by making two of the remaining three first teams.

While he didn’t make the first team, Lockett became the first K-State football player to receive recognition of some kind from All-America teams in four consecutive seasons.
