Marino | Football Writers All-America Ballott

Part of my duties as a member of the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA), is to cast my ballot for the All-American Team.  With many deserving players at each position, this was not an easy task. It’s an honor to share in highlighting the outstanding play of the top performers in college football this season.

It’s important to note that this designation is not looked at from a NFL Draft perspective, but rather who has performed the best at the college level. Below is my 2017 FWAA All-American vote.
