Bruce second-team All-American


The Associated Press All-America football team is out, and Cougar defensive end Mkristo Bruce earned second-team honors (see the three teams on the full entry link).

And that's an honor that is deserved. The senior was an unstoppable sack machine early in the year out of the 4-3 alignment, a skill that is always noticed by NFL scouts. But when injuries forced WSU to play a 3-4 for much of the second half of the year, Bruce sucked it up and still had some outstanding performances, even if his sack totals went down. That team play is also something NFL scouts notice.

As did the AP voters.


The P-I's Ted Miller did ESPN's Pac-10 review that appeared on its site.
