March 23, 2004
New York, NY - Josh Childress, the 2004 Pacific-10 Player of the Year, has added another first team All-American selection to his impressive resume.
Childress was named on Tuesday to the five-man Associated Press All-American first team along with Emeka Okafor of Connecticut, Jameer Nelson of St. Joseph's, Ryan Gomes of Providence, and Lawrence Roberts of Mississippi State.
Childress becomes only the second player in the 89-year history of Stanford Basketball to be named a first team Associated Press All-American. Casey Jacobsen was a first team selection during the 2000-01 season.
Childress now has been named first team All-American three times this year. Earlier, Childress was named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) and the Adolph F. Rupp team. Childress was also named third team ESPN.com All-American.
After missing the first nine games of the 2003-04 season with a stress reaction in his left foot, Childress started 18 of 23 games and led the team in scoring (15.7 ppg) and rebounding (7.5 rpg). Childress helped the Cardinal to a 30-2 record, a Pac-10 championship and a #1 national ranking.
Childress is also a finalist for the John R. Wooden, and Naismith Player of the Year awards.
