Maryland kicker Nick Ferrara was named to the FWAA's freshman All-America team.
Ferrara won the kicking job out of camp and also served as Maryland's kickoff specialist. He also punted for several games while Travis Baltz was injured.
He wound up 18-for-25 on field goal attempts and made all 26 extra point tries. His 80 points were the most for a Maryland freshman since Nick Novak had 89 in 2001.
Ferrara was one of four ACC players on the freshman All-America team, along with Virginia Tech tailback Ryan Williams, Boston College linebacker Luke Kuechly and Florida State punt returner Greg Reid.
