Chalk up more preseason honors for LaMichael James and Cliff Harris with the latest being spots on the 55th annual Playboy Preseason All-America Team.

James was one of the two running backs and Harris was the all-purpose player on the 26-man team, which has been chosen by the iconic magazine since 1957.
