The 2009 Football Writers Association of America All-America Team was announced on Saturday and FSU's OL Rodney Hudson is the representative for the Seminole Nation.
The FWAA All-America Team, the second-longest continuously-published team in major college football, was announced on ABC-TV for the sixth straight season during a one-hour show that was sponsored by AT&T. The FWAA has named an All-America team in some form since 1944.
As of 2009, the NCAA recognizes the lists of All-Americans selected by the AP, AFCA, FWAA, Sporting News, and the WCFF to determine consensus All-Americans. At least three of these organizations have to select a player in order for him to receive the "consensus" honor. If a player is named an All-American by all five organizations, he receives the "unanimous consensus" status.
