AP Makes Jarrett SC’s Lone First-Team All-American

dwayne-jarrett.jpgFrom ESPN:

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.

  1. That sucks.Bad. Steve Smith got dicked over again. He was the glue guy for our team and the best route runner of all the receivers. Great news for Jarrett, but he had the propensity to disappear at times and drop passes. Steve Smith was money. every time.all the time. And without him, we are a 3-4 loss team. Trojanwire should give have a post dedicated to Steve Smith because he’s been in everyone’s shadow the last couple of years.

  2. Well, no Trojan made the ESPN All-American team, even Jarrett. He was hampered by his injuries in some key games and didn’t always seem mentally there sometimes even when he DID play. Maybe he should come back for his Senior Year and really show ’em. Wishful thinking, prolly.
