Walter Camp, "The Father of American football," first selected an All-America team in 1889. Camp – a former Yale University athlete and football coach – is also credited with developing play from scrimmage, set plays, the numerical assessment of goals and tries and the restriction of play to eleven men per side. The Walter Camp Football Foundation – a New Haven-based all-volunteer group – was founded in 1967 to perpetuate the ideals of Camp and to continue the tradition of selecting annually an All-America team.

Fason honored by Walter Camp Foundation
Fason helped lead Florida to a 20-3 victory over Kentucky with 253 all-purpose yards, including a career-best 210 rushing yards on 31 carries. He became the first Gator since Emmitt Smith (vs. New Mexico, 1989) to rush for more than 200 yards in a single game as he turned in the fourth best single game rushing total in school history. Fason scored multiple touchdowns for the fourth time in his career with a 46-yard touchdown run and a seven-yard scoring reception. The Jacksonville Beach, Fla. native finished the day with a career-high five catches for 43 yards.
