Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston is celebrating his birthday as a Freshman All-American, although this comes as far from a shock as possibly considering the season he has had for the Seminoles. This season’s Heisman Trophy winner was named to the Freshman All-American team by the Football Writers Association of America.

Florida State also had defensive back Jalen Ramsey named to the Freshman All-American team. Florida State’s BCS Championship Game opponent, Auburn, is also represented with offensive lineman Alex Kozan being named to the team as well. In addition, Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn was named to the freshman team as the nation’s top first-year head coach at Auburn, although this is actually Malzahn’s second year as a head coach.

    Freshman All-American Teams and Lists should be saved for players that are actually true freshman. Not Redshirt Freshman that are really Sophomore’s who have been in their teams program for at least 2 years.

    Well, if they saved it for true freshmen, who would fill out the team since most true freshmen don’t play for obvious reasons? Redshirt freshman means they didn’t play a year ago or barely did, so what’s your point? We should designate them by how long they’ve been a student on campus?

    No, it should be true freshman. Huge difference between RS frosh & true frosh. A RS gets one full season to learn the system. If they were an early enrollee, then they have TWO Spring practices under the belt yet they’re considered a “freshman”. They should just list the few true freshmen who deserve to be FR AA. Then have a RS FR AA list. In the big picture it doesn’t matter but at least be consistent. Johnny Manziel & Jameis Winston accomplished an awesome feat when winning the Heisman….but they were Redshirt Freshmen.

    What school is “Louisiana”? No such school exists.

    No treadwell or Tunsil?

    Pretty egregious mistake leaving those two off. Guess leading the SEC in receptions as a freshman with 72 and only giving up 1 sack all year isn’t all American worthy.

    The University of Louisiana at Lafayette is apparently going by “Louisiana” these days. They are calling themselves “Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns”.

    I was completely dumbfounded by this article’s headline. Gus Malzahn’s a freshman? Who know?

    Correct info on the Ragin Cajuns use of Louisiana. We brand our athletics as Louisiana, but officially we are the the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Just like most schools do with their athletic branding.
