Franklin named FWAA All-American

Johnathan Franklin made the FWAA All-American list today, the last of the NCAA-recognized teams to be announced. Of those five teams (AP, AFCA, Walter Camp, Sporting News are the others), this is Franklin’s first appearance on a first team. He missed out on AFCA and Sporting News lists, and made the AP and Walter Camp second teams.

USC’s Marqise Lee was the only Pac-12 player to make all five first teams. Tellingly, no running backs in the country achieved unanimous All-American status, with Franklin, Kenjon Barner (Oregon), Montee Ball (Wisconsin) and Ka’Deem Carey (Arizona) all swapping in and out of the top spots.

    Hey … anyone notice that our own former Inside UCLA wank Jon Gold (CBS Sports) was the official Pac-12 committee member. Don’t know whether to feel good or bad about that, but you can be sure that he played a role in gettgin our JF on the team! Kudos Jon … hope you didn’t have to buy pastrami sandwiches for the rest of the committee to garner their support! :)
