Travis Leffew named AP All-American

Posted Dec 13, 2004

Travis Leffew of the University of Louisville has been named a third team All-American by the Associated Press.

Starting all 11 games at offensive tackle, Leffew has been a mainstay for the Cardinals on the offensive line for the last year seasons. He's started 37 straight games at tackle, which is one behind the school mark of 38 consectutive starts held by former quarterback Dave Ragone.

Leffew, who has graded out at 90 percent or higher in nine of 11 games is part of an offense that ranks No. 1 in the country in scoring offense (50.3) and total offense (536.7).

Leffew was named a CNN/ second All-American earlier this week. He's the first All-America selection for the Cardinals since Broderick Clark was a selection in 2002.

The Cardinals (10-1), ranked seventh in the country, will face 10th-ranked Boise State in the Liberty Bowl on December 31.
