PULLMAN, Wash. --- Washington State junior offensive tackle Calvin Armstrong has been selected second team preseason All-America by Athlon Sports.
The 6-8, 321-pound lineman earned first team All-Pac-10 honors in 2002, becoming the first Cougar to earn the honor as a sophomore since current Detroit Lions kicker Jason Hanson accomplished the feat in 1989.
Armstrong, a native of Centralia, Wash., was one of 40 players named to The Rotary Lombardi Award preseason watch list in May. He has started 20 games for WSU since beginning his career on the Palouse in 2000.
