More Frosh A-A honors for Stone

Tennessee center James Stone was named to the Football Writers Association of America's 2010 Freshman All-America team, marking his second such selection for his rookie season efforts.

James Stone also earned Freshman All-America honors via the Sporting News in December. The 6-4, 295-pound snapper is the second Vol on the offensive line in as many years to earn multiple Freshman All-America accolades. Aaron Douglas was also named to both the Sporting News and FWAA teams last year.

The Nashville product saw action in 12 games and started eight contests as a true freshman, including three at left guard and the last five at center. Stone anchored UT's offensive line during the team's 4-0 effort in November to become bowl eligible.

During the month of November, the Vols allowed just six sacks, including none at Memphis. Since Stone moved to center, UT averaged 415.8 yards of offense, including the Music City Bowl.

Stone was one of five SEC players placed on the FWAA team, tying the Big 12 for most players named to the squad from any given conference. The 10th annual team featured 20 true freshmen.

Previous Tennessee representatives on the FWAA Freshman All-America squad, first selected in 2001, were Kelley Washington (2001), James Wilhoit (2003), Roshaun Fellows (2004), Eric Berry (2007) and Aaron Douglas (2009).
