Cal wide receiver Demetris Robertson has been named a Freshman All-American by the Football Writers Association of America

After breaking records held by DeSean Jackson and Keenan Allen, California wide receiver Demetris Robertson has earned Freshman All-American honors from the Football Writers Association of America.

California wide receiver Demetris Robertson has earned another Freshman All-American honor, being named to the Football Writers Association of America's Frosh All-American list on Monday. The honor follows first-team selections by Athlon Sports, and USA TODAY, and second-team honors from Campus Insiders. Robertson becomes the first Cal Freshman All-American since Keenan Allen was a fourth-team pick in 2010, and the first to earn first-team honors since DeSean Jackson in 2005. 

Robertson, who played in 12 games with 11 starts, broke records held by both Jackson and Allen this season. Robertson's 767 receiving yards broke Jackson's freshman mark for a Bears receiver, his 50 catches broke Allen's freshman program record for receptions, and his seven touchdowns tied the Cal freshman mark set by Jackson in 2005.

Robertson led all Pac-12 freshmen in touchdown catches, receiving yards, receiving yards per game (63.9) and yards per reception (15.3), ranking in the top 10 nationally in all of those categories. He was third among Pac-12 freshmen, and eighth in the nation, in receptions per game (4.5). The speedy athlete out of Savannah, Ga., was also tied for ninth nationally among all players, with five, 50-plus yard receptions. Robertson had two 100-yard receiving games, including a 141-yard, six-catch effort against College Football Playoff semifinalist Washington.  

Robertson set a career-high with nine catches for 92 yards against eventual Rose Bowl champion USC, and caught two touchdowns twice -- against Arizona State and Utah. He was second among Cal receivers to All-Pac-12 redshirt junior Chad Hansen in in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. Top Stories
