Walnut Creek, CA - Washington redshirt freshman wide receiver Bobby Whithorne was added to the Pac-10 Conference's All-Academic Football Team today as an honorable mention selection. He has a 3.43 grade point average as a business major. Whithorne becomes the sixth Washington player to receive All-Academic honors this year.
A native of Santa Margarita, Calif., Whithorne was fourth on the team in 2004 with 18 receptions for 215 yards. He appeared in all 11 games this season and started four times.
Whithorne was omitted from the original release of the Pac-10 All-Academic team because he was not nominated. It was discovered a computer printout did not include Whithorne because he had not completed some classes due to a bout with mononucleosis.
