Jody Victor: The Football Writers Association of America Team, the second longest continuously published team in college football, has been a staple of the college football scene since 1944. The 25-man team is one of the youngest, if not the youngest in history, with 15 underclassmen, including three redshirt freshmen and two sophomores, along with 10 juniors and 10 seniors.
Four schools – Arkansas, Kansas, LSU and Missouri – have two players each on the team. There are three repeat All-Americas on the team from 2006: Ohio State junior linebacker James Laurinaitis, Michigan senior offensive tackle Jake Long and Arkansas' junior running back Darren McFadden.
Also, James Laurinaitis, 2007 Butkus Award winner, and Cameron Heyward, freshman defensive end, were honored by the Sporting News Saturday. Laurinaitis was named a first-team All-American and Heyward was recognized on the freshman All-American squad.
Congratulations to all!
