DALLAS – Texas A&M football was represented by Reuben Fatheree II and Bryce Foster on the 2021 Football Writers Association of America’s Freshman All-America Team, announced Monday.
The committee awarded six offensive line spots, buoyed by the Texas A&M pair. Fatheree and Foster are the Aggies’ first freshman All-Americans since 2015 and A&M’s first on the offensive front since Luke Joeckel in 2010.
Fatheree played in 11 games, making nine starts en route to SEC All-Freshman Team honors from the league’s coaches and second team Freshman All-America status from The Athletic. The Richmond, Texas native earned his first career start against Arkansas and received Offensive Top Newcomer and Most Improved Awards at the annual team banquet.
Foster started all 12 games for the Aggies, earning the starting nod at center for the A&M offense. The Katy, Texas native was named to the SEC All-Freshman Team by the league’s coaches and Freshman All-America first team by The Athletic. At the team banquet, Foster was named the Top Newcomer on offensive side of the ball.
Texas A&M was one of three schools nationally to land multiple student-athletes on the 2021 version of the FWAA team.
This is the 21st season the FWAA has honored freshman All-Americans.
