Three Tide Frosh Earn All-America
Alabama has had three freshmen in the starting lineup this season, and all have been selected for first team Freshman All-America by various organizations.
D.J. Fluker, Demarcus Milliner and C.J. Mosley have all garnered first-team Freshman All-America honors after outstanding seasons for the Alabama Crimson Tide in 2010.
The honors were released by CollegeFootballNews.com and Phil Steele.
Fluker was a first-team pick by CollegeFootballNews.com while Milliner was first-team selection by Phil Steele, and CollegeFootballNews.com. Mosley was a first-team choice by CollegeFootballNews.com and a second-team choice by Phil Steele.
Mosley, a linebacker from Theodore, is third on the team in tackles (66) with two interception returns for touchdowns and a team-high eight pass breakups. He started three games at mike linebacker in nickel formations for the Tide as a true freshman and registered five or more tackles in nine games. He set a career-high with 12 stops against Mississippi State.
Milliner, a cornerback from Millbrook, has 52 tackles to rank fourth on the team while breaking up five passes and making one interception. He started 10 games at cornerback as a true freshman and made seven or more tackles in four games, including a season-high nine stops against Auburn. Milliner also recorded four tackles for loss, which was the most of any Tide player in the secondary.
Fluker, who hails from Foley, started eight games at right tackle, clearing a path for 435.6 yards of offense per game, the second-highest total in school history. The redshirt freshman was the opening-game starter and only missed time along the offensive line after an injury in the South Carolina game.
Alabama returned to the practice field Thursday in preparation for the Capital One Bowl game against Michigan State in Orlando on January 1.
