The UW Badger football team is almost one hundred percent positive to be playing in the 2010 / 2011 Rose Bowl game, and thus we will be updating with multiple reports per day heading up to the big game. The first is the exciting and deserved news that Gabe Carimi the Badgers outstanding left tackle has been named a first team All-American by the American Football Coaches Association.
Gabe Carimi is a fifth year senior who played his high school ball locally at College Grove High School. Coming out of high school he was your run of the mill lineman recruit, not a five star stud but he turned himself into a player over his five years that made him worthy of joining a long list of elite Badger offensive lineman. Carimi is also a finalist for the Outland Trophy which all everything former Badger lineman Joe Thomas won back in the day. Carimi also figures to be a first round draft choice in the next NFL draft something you might not have said after the MSU game. After MSU everybody talked about his stock falling but Gabe and the other regulars along the offensive line upped their game so significantly after that point that there was no question they are the best line in the nation and one of the 2 or 3 best Badger offensive lines of all time allowing Tolzien's jersey to stay sparkling white and the running back trio to rush to the record books.
The following video is Gabe Carimi working against fellow Big Ten stud Ohio State's Cameron Heyward in the 2010 game.
Gabe is joined by fellow Badger Lance Kendricks on the first team All American team, more on that in our next post as we thought they each deserved their own recognition.
