Seattle - Washington sophomore wide receiver Reggie Williams has been named a second-team All-American by the CNNSI.com. Husky junior quarterback Cody Pickett was an honorable mention selection by the media outlet. This is the fourth year CNNSI.com has selected All-America teams for college football. It is one of seven polls officially recognized by the NCAA in honoring consensus All-Americans.

Williams led Washington in 2002 with 89 receptions for 1390 yards. Both marks were Husky single-season records. Williams ranked fifth in the nation in receiving yards per game (115.8) and is eighth in receptions per game (7.42). During his first two seasons as a Husky he has already set UW career records for receptions (144) and receiving yards (2,363).

Pickett established a Husky single-season passing record by throwing for 4,186 yards. He became the first quarterback in Pac-10 history to surpass the 4,000-yard passing mark in a season.
