Groza Award winner Thomas Weber named AP First Team All-American
TEMPE, Ariz. - Arizona State University football student-athlete and 2007 Lou Groza Award winner Thomas Weber was named a First Team All-American by the Associated Press today. Weber is the first Sun Devil to be named an AP First Team All-American since Terrell Suggs in 2002.
Weber, a redshirt freshman from Downey, Calif., is one of three freshmen on the First Team, joining Texas Tech WR Michael Crabtree and Missouri's Jeremy Maclin, who was selected as an all-purpose player.
Weber went 22-23 on field goals, including the first 17 of his career. That set a school record for consecutive made field goals and consecutive made field goals to start a career. The 17 straight is an NCAA long this season. He is the Pac-10's leading scorer at 9.0 points per game and was named the Lou Groza Award winner last Thursday in Orlando, Fla.
Weber and the Sun Devils will face the Texas Longhorns in the Pacific Life Holiday Bowl on Dec. 27 in San Diego. The game will be televised by ESPN.
