Cason's Stock Keeps Improving

The AP All-American team was released and one of two First Team CBs was none other than Arizona's own Antoine Cason. 'Toine keeps racking up post-season awards and accolades and will definately be moving up on some team's draft boards who are in need of secondar help. Congratulations once again in order for Mr. Cason, Tucson's first All-American since (I believe) 1998's Chris McAllister.

Other notables include Colt Brennan (3rd in Heisman voting) as the 3rd Team All-American Quarterback, Chase Daniel (4th in voting) 2nd team QB, and first Tim Tebow. Darren McFadden and Kevin Smith (not Silent Bob) highlight the remaining first team backfield. Kevin Smith is Central Florida's first All-American since the program's inception 11 years ago. Mizzou's Michael Rucker at TE, Michael Crabtree and Jordy Nelson (K State) round out the Offensive skill sets at WRs. With the first team line being led by (most likely) top 10 pick, Jake "I'm not Howie's Son" Long and filling out with Anthony Collins at the other tackle, Duke Robinson and Martin O'Donnel as the interior offensive lineman, and center Steve Justice. True Feshman Jeremy Maclin made the First Team as the All-purpose player and Scum Devil kicker Thomas Weber rounds out the offensive First Team.

As for Defense, being led by Arizona stand out Cason, the Interior defensive lineman feature all everything DT Glen Dorsey (who I think just got another award for his play this season) and Sederick Ellis. The Exterior lineman being led by Chris "Howie's Son" Long from Virginia and George Selvie. Dan Connor, James "Road Warrior Animal's kid" Laurinaitis, and Jordan Dizon fill in the linebackers in the AP's fictional 4-3 set. And the DB's include Cason and Aqib Talib at the Corners and Craig Steltz and Jamie Silva filling in at the Safety position. Kevin Huber set for the team's Puntin Unit.

Congratulations are in order for every member of this team.
