Student Advantage's FANSonly Network Announces Pre-Season All-American Football Squads

Aug. 14, 2000

CORAL GABLES, Fla. ( – –

CARLSBAD, Calif. – Several Heisman hopefuls and three Florida State Seminoles highlight the first-team selections on the 2000 FANSonly/Student Advantage Pre-Season All-America Team announced Thursday. There were no unanimous picks among those chosen by Collegiate Sports Information Directors from across the country. Defending national champion Florida State paced the squad by placing end Roland Seymour, cornerback Tay Cody, and safety Derrick Gibson on the defensive first-team. Early Heisman candidates Drew Brees of Purdue, Santana Moss of Miami (Fla.), and LaDainian Tomlinson of Texas Christian, were among the marquee names voted on to the first-team offense.

A prolific quarterback, Brees has been on the Heisman radar screen for two years, having thrown for 3,983 yards and 39 touchdowns in 1998 and 3,909 yards and 25 touchdowns in 1999. Perhaps the nation’s most explosive wideout, Moss could enjoy a breakout season after making 54 catches for 899 yards and six TDs last year. Also an electrifying return man, Moss originally came to Miami to run track, then walked onto the football team. Tomlinson led the nation in rushing last season at 1,850 yards and set an NCAA single-game record of 406 rushing yards against UTEP.

The complete FANSonly/Student Advantage Pre-Season All-America Team is as follows:
