Miami Hurricanes and their fan base have a lot to look forward towards not only in the upcoming bowl game but also next year. Three Miami Hurricanes made the ESPN freshman All-American team this week.

WR Ahammon Richards who led the team with 866 receiving yards on 46 catches. He surpassed the “Playmaker” Michael Irvin earlier in the year for receiving yards for a freshman at Miami.

The other players who made the team were LBs Shaq Quarterman and Michael Pinckney Jr.  Quarterman led the team in tackles with 79 along with nice tackles for a loss, 2.5 sacks a fumble recovery and a TD. Pinckney had 57 tackles 6.5 tackles for a loss, 2.5 sacks and INT and a TD.

Clearly the future for the Canes is quite bright.

In addition the Canes held their awards night on Sunday, where sophomore RB Mark Walton was named team MVP. Walton rushed for 1,065 yards on 192 carries and a team high 14 TDs.

Born in the Nation’s Capital, Washington D.C., Ari Russell watched the rise of the 1980’s Miami Hurricanes and knew that he had to be part of the “U” someday. After graduating from Coral Gables, Ari rose through the ranks of the former XM Satellite Radio and then Sirius/XM as college football executive producer.

Ari brings a great perspective on everything Miami, including the Dolphins to F.F.I.
