NEW YORK — Penn State linebacker Paul Posluszny and Southern California receiver Dwayne Jarrett overcame adversity to become two-time Associated Press All-Americans.
In addition to Jarrett, offensive linemen Sam Baker and Ryan Kalil both received 2nd team honors.
We’re thrilled for Jarrett, Baker and Kalil — but can’t help feeling like maybe Steve Smith got a raw deal, getting omitted from 1st, 2nd and 3rd team All-American lists, despite being the Trojans go-to guy for most of the season.
But perhaps most shockingly, not a single member of the Trojan defense was honored. We can only hope Keith Rivers, Rey Maualuga, and Taylor Mays all take deep offense to the omission, and make it a personal goal to show voters just how wrong they were throughout the 2007 season.
