More Preseason Honors For Calderwood
June 21, 2007
LOGAN, Utah - Utah State football player Ben Calderwood has been named to two more preseason all-WAC lists, bringing the junior defensive end's honor list to four.
Recently, Sporting News and Athlon both tabbed Calderwood to preseason awards teams in their college football preview editions. Earlier this spring, Calderwood was on the Blue Ribbon Yearbook and Lindy's College Football Preview Preseason all-WAC lists. Street & Smith's College Football Preview will be released June 26.
Calderwood, a native of Smithfield, Utah (Sky View HS), earned second-team all-WAC last season after leading USU's defensive linemen with 44 tackles despite missing two games. He also was second on the team with 6.5 tackles for loss and tied for second in sacks with two. Calderwood earned WAC Defensive Player of the Week honors on Oct. 9 after USU's win against Fresno State, in which his nine tackles against the Bulldogs were the most by an Aggie lineman since 2003.
Utah State opens the 2007 season on Thursday, Aug. 30, hosting UNLV in a 6:05 p.m. kick off at Romney Stadium.
