Each year, an increasing number of freshmen make an impact in college football. And this year was no exception as several rookies, such as Oklahoma running back Adrian Peterson and Michigan quarterback Chad Henne, emerged as premier players nationally. Numerous others, meanwhile, became impact players for their respective teams.
With the regular season nearly complete, it’s time to announce the 2004 Freshman All-America Team, which is headlined by Michigan and its three players who were selected to the first-team offense. Texas A&M, meanwhile, led all schools with four players making either the first or second team, while, along with the Wolverines, top-ranked USC, Tennessee and Illinois each had three players recognized.
