Non-AQ All-Freshman team

So putting together a non-AQ All-Freshman team is just as difficult as putting together the regular team, only for different reasons. While there’s an abundance of receivers and running backs, finding offensive linemen was not an easy task. So, instead of just putting guys in there for the heck of it, I left out two OL spots.

Hopefully, this is an accurate list of non-AQ freshmen that made their teams better this season.
