Gerod Holliman Named Midseason All-American By ESPN

Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

Louisville safety Gerod Holliman, the nation's leader in interceptions, picked up some serious national love on Tuesday from ESPN, which named the redshirt sophomore a midseason All-American.

Holliman was one of 25 players honored by the worldwide leader.

Gerod Holliman, Louisville: Holliman has been the breakout star on one of the nation's top defenses through seven weeks. The Louisville sophomore has already racked up seven interceptions, which leads the nation. A year ago, only Virginia's Anthony Harris had more for the entire season. More importantly, Holliman's contributions have helped the Cardinals overcome a lackluster offense early with a defense that has allowed just three offensive touchdowns to FBS foes all year. -- David M.

Holliman needs just three more picks to match the U of L single-season record of 10, set by Anthony Floyd in 2000.
