Bolden and Weber Named to 2007 AON Insurance Freshman All-America Team

Jan. 8, 2008

Cornerback Omar Bolden and kicker Thomas Weber were named to the 2007 AON Insurance Freshman All-America Team on Monday, as selected by the Football Writers Association of America.

ASU was one of three schools to have two players selected to the team, along with Florida State (offensive lineman Rodney Hudson and center Ryan McMahon) and Texas Tech (wide receiver Michael Crabtree and defensive lineman Colby Whitlock).

Bolden started the final nine games of the season for the Sun Devils, and he finished with 33 tackles, six pass breakups and one interception, which he returned for a touchdown in ASU's 41-3 win at Stanford Sept. 29, 2007.

Weber, who became the first freshman ever to win the Lou Groza Award, presented annually to the nation's best kicker, made 24 of his 25 field goal attempts on the season. That included a school-record 17 consecutive made field goals to begin the year.

He also handled the punting duties in ASU's final eight games of the season, averaging 39.3 yards per punt and downing 11 of his 47 punts inside the 20.
