Carr Reaches Rare Air

Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr has been named a Capitol One Academic All-American.

The latest honor comes a day after he won the Sammy Baugh Award, going each year to the best passer in college football.

Carr is only the fifth Fresno State football player to earn the honor, named to the second team.

Next week Carr will be in new York to be recognized as one of only 16 National Football Foundation Scholar Athletes.

Carr is also up for the Walter V. Campbell Trophy, the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, and the Manning Award.

Carr leads college football quarterbacks in just about every stat there is.
