CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson capped a solid first collegiate football season with a pair of Freshman All-America accolades.

CollegeFootballNews.com named Henderson a first team freshman All-American and wrote, ” One of the biggest linemen in the country and a five-star recruit, he got better as the season progressed, earning the start at right tackle, grading out at 88.4% with 15 pancakes.”

He was also named second team freshman All-American by Rivals.com and writer David Fox.

Below are bullets on Henderson’s 2010 campaign:
* Graded out at 88.4 percent with 15 pancakes in 11 games of action in 2010.
* Henderson played in 11 games and started the last  nine at right tackle for UM.
* Miami’s offensive production has increased since Henderson moved into the starting lineup against Clemson.  UM has run for 212 yards per game with Henderson starting at tackle. When he was not starting at tackle, Miami averaged just 125 rushing yards per game.
* The `Canes total offense also improved to 440 yards with Henderson, while it was just 368.3 before he entered the lineup for the last nine games.
*Henderson is part of a Miami offensive line that leads the ACC with five o-lineman of the week honors.

Earlier on Tuesday, linebacker Sean Spence and wide receiver Leonard Hankerson received honorable mention All-American honors from SI.com.

UM players are wrapping up finals this week and will continue on-field preparations for the 2010 Hyundai Sun Bowl on Wednesday morning.  The `Canes and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish will renew their rivalry in front of a national TV audience on CBS on Dec. 31 at 2 p.m. Eastern.
