Honorable Mention
UW also had three players named honorable mention --- Locker, Fr.; DT Jordan Reffett, Sr.; WR Anthony Russo, Sr.

COMMENT --- Of the four UW honorees, four were Rick Neuheisel recruits and only one from Tyrone Willingham --- Locker. Also, Brink is a little surprising on the surface given the season WSU had and the criticism Brink took from his own fan base. I kind of figured Rudy Carpenter might get the second-team nod.

UW has had just one first-team player since 2003 --- C.J. Wallace last season --- a shocking dropoff that could be used to defend all sorts of positions --- that Willingham hasn't had any talent to work with, or that he hasn't brought any in himself developed what he's had to get to that level.
