Zach Miller Named Second-Team All-American by The Sporting News
Dec. 8, 2004
Tempe, Ariz. -- Arizona State University football player Zach Miller has been selected to The Sporting News 2004 All-American second-team, announced by the publication. This is Miller's second All-American honor as a tight end by The Sporting News as he earned first-team Freshman All-American acclaim as well. Miller is one of four true freshmen to garner first or second-team TSN All-American honors this year.
Miller, who was selected as the Pacific-10 Conference Freshman of the Year and a first-team All-America honoree from Rivals.com, has already set both of ASU's freshman receiving records as he took possession of the receiving yards record with 524 yards, surpassing the 423 yards College Football Hall of Famer John Jefferson had in 1974. He already owns ASU's record for receptions by a rookie with 51 and has moved into second on the ASU top 10 list for catches by a tight end in a single season. All-American Todd Heap set all of ASU's single-season records for receiving by a tight end with 55 catches for 832 yards in 1999. Miller ranks seventh in the Pac-10 in receiving and is the second-leading receiver among tight ends.
The following is the complete list of the first and second teams:
