Goddard Named 2nd Team All-America


Posted Dec 11, 2008


CHAPEL HILL, N.C. --- North Carolina safety Trimane Goddard has been named to the 2008 Walter Camp All-America second team.

The Walter Camp team is the oldest All-America squad in the nation, now in its 119th season honoring players across the country. Goddard is the first Tar Heel to earn All-America honors since center Jason Brown in 2004.

Goddard is tied for the national lead with seven interceptions. He also has 48 tackles, 1.5 tackles for losses, five pass breakups, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. Twice he intercepted a pass on an opponent’s final drive to seal a win (Miami & Duke), and against Notre Dame his fumble recovery clinched Carolina’s victory.

For his on-field efforts, he was named to the All-ACC first team and a Thorpe Award semifinalist. Goddard’s seven interceptions equals the third-best single-season effort by a Tar Heel.

Walter Camp, "The Father of American Football," first selected an All-America team in 1889. Camp - a former Yale University athlete and football coach - is also credited with developing play from scrimmage, set plays, the numerical assessment of goals and tries and the restriction of play to eleven men per side. The Walter Camp Football Foundation - a New Haven based all-volunteer group - was founded in 1967 to perpetuate the ideals of Camp and to continue the tradition of selecting annually an All-America team.
