TCU's Marcus Cannon Named Honorable Mention All-American by Pro Football Weekly
Dec. 20, 2010
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -
TCU offensive tackle Marcus Cannon has been named a honorable mention All-American by Pro Football Weekly.
Cannon, a two-time first-team all-MWC selection, successfully moved from right tackle to left tackle in 2010. Hailing from Odessa, Texas, the senior contributes to an offensive line that paves the way for the Horned Frogs to rank tied for fourth nationally in scoring offense (43.3 points per game), eighth in rushing offense (261.2 yards per game) and ninth in total offense (491.5 yards per game).
PFW's All-America team is determined based on considerable feedback from NFL evaluators taking into consideration a player's talent and contribution to his team. Unlike many other teams rewarding the best college football players, PFW places an extra premium on talent and draft value in the selection process. Extra attention was paid to qualities such as toughness, competitiveness and work ethic.
