UT guard Parker named 2nd team AP All American

Knoxville, (WVLT/AP), The AP writers have released their All America selections for 2007 and there is one Tennessee Vol on the list. That Vol is Junior guard Anthony Parker, who has been named to the AP All America 2nd team. Anthony was also recently named All SEC first team. Parker is part of a UT offensive line, which has allowed just four sacks this season. The Jonesboro, GA. native is quite versatile starting at right guard last year and all 12 games at left guard this season.
Arkansas junior running back and two-time Heisman Trophy runner-up Darren McFadden is one of four unanimous selections to The Associated Press All-America team. He's joined by LSU defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey, Southern California defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis and Texas Tech receiver Michael Crabtree.
McFadden and Dorsey join Michigan offensive tackle Jake Long and Ohio State linebacker James Laurinaitis on the first team for a second straight year.
Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Tim Tebow joins McFadden in the backfield along with 2007 rushing champion Kevin Smith of Central Florida.
McFadden set school records with 1,725 yards rushing and 2,172 all-purpose yards, breaking the marks he set last year. He scored 16 touchdowns and threw four TD passes, working as a quarterback out of Arkansas' shotgun Wild Hog formation.
The junior has said he'll decide whether to return to school for his senior season after the Cotton Bowl on January 1st.
