What a season! We have endured so many crazy ups and downs and not to mention some crazy QB play from the Big 12 as well. I am here to bring you my All-American team, not only a team that represents the best athletes, but at times giving a shout out to the little man. Buckle up guys, hope you enjoy.
Colt McCoy, QB, Texas
What a year for the Texas-born boy. McCoy stepped up and accounted for 42 total touchdowns, ran for over 500 yards, passed for over 3,000 yards, and held an astronomical 77 completion percentage.
Shonn Greene, RB, Iowa
This man deserves some kudos. Pretty much did the best with the least. Ran for over 1,700 yards and ran for 15 TD's in a year where he led Iowa back to a January bowl.
Sammie Stroghter, WR, Oregon State
While Stroughter didn't have the most amazing statistical year, he did return to put up great numbers and lead his Beavers to a great bowl game.
Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma
Not much competition here. Gresham has a rare blend of amazing size and speed and he put that to use many times this year as he became Sam Bradford's favorite target and was a monstrous red zone target.
Alabama Crimson Tide
What more could you want? This team protected John Parker Wilson all year and dominated the running lanes. Headed by Andre Smith, this was the foundation of their run this year.
Penn State Nittany Lions
What a surprise, this team beat teams up and won the Big 10 this year all because of this stout defense. Kudos to JoPa, still getting it done.
James Laurinaitis, LB, Ohio State
This man is the epitome of beast. His dad was a WWE star and James brings that same intensity to the football field. Great year for James, look out NFL.
Malcolm Jenkins, CB, Ohio State
Truly lived up to the preseason hype, and led a very strong Bucks defense that lost a few squeakers besides the USC beat down. (Also looking for other suggestions in this position)
Eric Berry, SS, Tennessee
I can't think of a more perfect person for this pick. Berry did it all for the Vols this year, playing offense and defense. He embodies what it is to be a team player and is a touchdown threat every time he touches the ball.
Alex Henerey, K, Nebraska
Mr. Clutch. Henerey led the Huskers on many occasions and became their go-to guy when he was needed. Expect more of this in his coming years.
My Heisman choice for this season was in fact, Colt McCoy of the University of Texas.
Hope you enjoyed it, I look forward to the bowls as well as writing my All-Bowl Game team.
