Simpson, Bresee and McFadden named to Walter Camp All-America preseason team


by -

The Walter Camp Football Foundation announced today that Clemson defensive tackle Bryan Bresee and linebacker Trenton Simpson have been named as first-team Preseason All-Americans. Offensive tackle Jordan McFadden was named as a second-team Preseason All-American in addition.

Ten players who earned Walter Camp All-American recognition in 2020 and/or 2021 are on the 2022 preseason list

Walter Camp, “The Father of American football,” first selected an All-America team in 1889. Camp – a former Yale University athlete and football coach – is also credited with developing play from scrimmage, set plays, the numerical assessment of goals and tries and the restriction of play to eleven men per side. The Walter Camp Football Foundation (www.waltercamp.org,@WalterCampFF) – a New Haven-based all-volunteer group – was founded in 1967 to perpetuate the ideals of Camp and to continue the tradition of selecting annually an All-America team.

The Foundation is a member of the National College Football Awards Association (NCFAA). The NCFAA was founded in 1997 as a coalition of the major collegiate football awards to protect, preserve and enhance the integrity, influence and prestige of the game’s predominant awards. The NCFAA encourages professionalism and the highest standards for the administration of its member awards and the selection of their candidates and recipients.
