Anthony Barr named first-team Walter Camp All-American

UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr landed an official All-American honor Thursday night, and it likely won’t be his last this season. The senior was named to the Walter Camp first team, the first Bruin to earn a spot since kicker Kai Forbath since 2009.

The Walter Camp All-American team is one of five recognized by the NCAA, with the others being the Associated Press, AFCA, FWAA and Sporting News teams. Barr was a second-team AP All-American in 2012.

Earning spots on three first teams makes a player a “consensus” All-American, while all five makes him a “unanimous” All-American.

    Much deserved, I’ve followed Barr since his jr. Year of high school and knew he would be most dominant rushing the passer. After only two seasons he may go top 3. Going to miss seeing him rec havoc on QBs. He has one last game and I’m hoping he will make it his best against the Hokes’

      Congratulations to Anthony Barr.

      Whose idea was it not to play him on defense for his first two seasons at UCLA?
