Andre Williams, Nate Freese Named To ESPN All-America Team

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports


Another media outlet, another All-America honors for Andre Williams. This time, it's ESPN, which named Williams to its All-America Team at running back. Williams is joined by Arizona junior Ka'Deem Carey on ESPN's All-America Team at the running back position.

In a bit of a surprise, Boston College senior Nate Freese was named to ESPN's All-America Team at kicker. Freese beats out Florida State's Robert Aguayo, the Lou Groza Award winner and Walter Camp first-team All-American, and Northwestern's Jeff Budzien, who earned All-American honors from Sporting News.

Freese tied with Ohio's Josiah Yazdani as the nation's most accurate field goal kicker and was a blocked extra point away from perfection in his final season on the Heights. The Strongsville, Ohio native was a perfect 18-of-18 in field goal attempts and 39-of-40 on PATs, including 2-for-2 on field goal attempts of 50 yards or more. Freese's second chance, 52-yard field goal as time expired gave the Eagles a 29-26 victory at Maryland.

Freese did a bit of everything for Boston College this year, also handling kickoff (69 kickoffs, 4,429 yards, 49-of-69 touchbacks for 71.01%) and punting duties (70 punts, 2,937 yards, 41.96 average). A well deserved honor.

From the ACC, Dre Will and Freese are joined by QB Jameis Winston (Florida State), TE Eric Ebron (North Carolina), C Bryan Stork (Florida State), DT Aaron Donald (Pittsburgh), DT Timmy Jernigan (Florida State), SS Lamarcus Joyner (Florida State) and KR Ryan Switzer (North Carolina) on ESPN's All-America Team.
