FRESNO, Calif. - The Western Athletic Conference has named its 2000 All-WAC football team, and three Bulldogs have received first-team honors while six were named to the second team. The team was voted upon by WAC coaches.
Fresno State's first-team honorees were senior linebacker Orlando Huff, junior defensive tackle Alan Harper and junior strong safety Vernon Fox. For Harper and Huff, this marks the second consecutive season they have been named first-team All-WAC. It is Fox's first time on the All-WAC team.
The Bulldogs' offensive second-team members include sophomore wide receiver Bernard Berrian, junior quarterback David Carr and senior tackle Kevin Jordan. Second-team defense honors went to senior nose tackle Thabiti Lockhart, senior linebacker Tim Skipper and senior cornerback Dante Marsh. Of the Bulldogs' nine All-WAC members, four will return next year, the most All-WAC returnees of any other school.
TCU running back LaDainian Tomlinson was named WAC offensive player of the year while Horned Frogs defensive end Aaron Schobel was the defensive player of the year. UTEP head coach Gary Nord was the conference's coach of the year. Freshman of the year honors went to Hawai'i quarterback Timmy Chang.
The Sporting News also announced its Freshman All-America team Tuesday, and tight end Jeremy Johnson was named to the publication's first team. He was the only player from the WAC selected to TSN's first, second or third Freshman All-America team.
