More freshman Recognition - Bell / Johnson

Travis Bell is named to collegefootballnews.com's all freshman first team as the kicker:

PK Travis Bell, Georgia Tech – A walk-on, Bell quickly elevated the Tech kicking game from a potential concern to an area of strength. After missing his first kick of the year, he connected on his next 15 attempts to establish a new school record.

Now, here's the crazy thing. They named Calvin Johnson to the 2nd team offense. That's right, they actually found two freshman WR's that they thought were better than CJ. We should revisit their list in about 2 years. Forget that, how about half-way through next season?

WR Calvin Johnson*, Georgia Tech – An acrobat with terrific size and leaping ability, Johnson became just the 11th player in ACC history to be named first team as a freshman. His 46 catches, 776 yards and six touchdown receptions all led the Yellow Jackets.

Congrats to both guys for the well-deserved props.
