Rivals.com WAC all-freshman team

MORE NON-BIG SIX ALL-FRESHMAN TEAMS: Conference USA | MAC | Mountain West | Sun Belt

San Jose State coach Mike MacIntyre had a rough first season with the Spartans, but one thing that has to make him feel good about his program's future is the number of freshmen who played key roles this season.

Nine Spartans are on the Rivals.com All-WAC freshman team, including league freshman of the year Keith Smith, a true freshman linebacker. Smith is third in the league with 116 tackles and has 14 tackles for loss, four sacks and a fumble recovery. He had five games with double-figure tackles, including a season-high 19 against Utah State.

Our top offensive freshman is Utah State center Tyler Larsen, a redshirt freshman. Larsen started every game and made all the line calls for the Aggies, who ranked fourth in the league and 41st nationally in rushing at 168.7 yards per game.

Rather then bypass some deserving candidates, we decided not to be position-specific (i.e., cornerbacks, free safeties, etc.) in the secondary on our all-freshman team. In addition, no freshman quarterbacks or running backs did enough to merit any postseason honors.
