    Florida State defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan has been named a Freshman All-American by the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA). 

    Compiled by over 1,200 men and women that cover college football, this Freshman All-American team is widely regarded as the top one in the country each year.

    NEW ORLEANS (FWAA) - The 11th annual Football Writers Association of America Freshman All-America Team has been announced, with all six Bowl Championship Series conferences and Notre Dame well represented on the 26-man roster. A total of 23 players came from the Pac-12, SEC, Big 12, Big Ten, ACC and Big East conferences and the independent Fighting Irish.

    Southern California and Kansas State were the only schools with two players on the team. Two of the special teams selections hail from Australia.

    West Virginia's first-year coach Dana Holgorsen claimed the first-year coaching honors after his Mountaineers won the Big East Conference championship and finished with a 10-3 record after routing Clemson, 70-33, in the Discover Orange Bowl.

    The team and coach are selected by an 11-person panel of nationally-prominent writers led by Mike Griffith of the Knoxville News Sentinel. Both true freshmen (14 players) and redshirt freshmen (12 players) were considered for the team and are so noted.
