Barden, Field All-Americans, too

Cal Poly's football team also had a pair of underclassmen named to All-America teams Wednesday.
Wide receiver Ramses Barden and center Stephen Field, both juniors, were recognized on Associated Press Football Championship Subdivision All-America teams.
Barden was named to the first team, and Field, an Arroyo Grande High graduate, was on the third team.
The 6-foot-6 Barden shared the Great West Football Conference's offensive player of the year award with North Dakota State senior quarterback Steve Walker after catching 57 passes for 1,467 yards and 18 touchdowns. He broke Cal Poly records for receiving yards (1,467), points (108) and 100-yard receiving games (seven) in a season.
Field was an All-Great West first team selection for the third straight year, anchoring a Cal Poly offensive line that helped the Mustangs rank first nationally in total offense, fifth in rushing offense, and 27th in sacks allowed.
See Thursday's Tribune for more on this story along with the inside scoop on how the football team's 2008 schedule is coming along.
