Jan. 7, 2010
Corvallis, Ore. -
Oregon State University junior (2010 season) running back Jacquizz Rodgers has accepted an invitation to participate in the 43rd annual Walter Camp Foundation Awards ceremony, Jan. 14-16 at the historic Yale University Commons in Connecticut.
Rodgers was a second team Walter Camp All-American in 2009 after helping the Beavers tie for second in the Pac-10 with a 6-3 mark (8-5 overall). The first team All-Pac-10 selection rushed for 1,440 yards and a school-record 21 touchdowns. Overall, he accounted for 1,962 total yards and 22 touchdowns.
The Camp Foundation Awards ceremony begins Jan. 14 with several events, including an Alumni festival Jan. 15 that will include numerous former All-Americans including John Elway, Tony Dorsett, and Lincoln Kennedy. Elway is set to receive the organization’s Man of the Year Award and ABC News’ Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts will receive the “Distinguished American” Award. The 2009 All-America teams will also be formally introduced.
Walter Camp is one of the founding fathers of the American game of football and played on Yale’s first teams. The Walter Camp Foundation was formed in 1967 as a charitable organization, but the first Camp All-American team was selected in 1889.
