No Arizona player has ever finished among the top 10 vote-getters for the Heisman Trophy. Running back Ka'Deem Carey - with his nation-leading 1,757 rushing yards - should be the first.


Another day, another All-America award for Ka'Deem Carey. 

The Arizona Wildcats sophomore running back was named a first-team All-American by Athlon Sports today, a day after receiving similar honors from Carey and Wisconsin's Montee Ball are the two running backs on a team that includes, among others, Heisman Trophy finalists Manti Te'o and Johnny Manziel and Arizona State defensive lineman Will Sutton.

Carey has rushed for 1,757 rushing yards as a sophomore; his 146.42 rushing yards per game is tops in the country.
