<P><FONT face=Arial size=2>CHICAGO--University of Arizona senior cornerback Antoine Cason has been named to the the Playboy College All-America Football Team, one of the sporting world's early measures of the nation's top players.</FONT></P> <P><FONT face=Arial size=2>This is the 51st year that Playboy magazine has named a preseason All-America team, a tradition that has included such players as Dan Marino, John Elway, Troy Aikman and Peyton Manning, to name a few quarterbacks, and coaches that span the decades from Alabama's Paul "Bear" Bryant to last year's pick, Pete Carroll of Southern California.</FONT></P> <P><FONT face=Arial size=2>The entire team was not released by the publication, but Playboy offices have contacted Cason to complete travel plans for the magazine's All-America weekend this May at a resort in the Phoenix area. The magazine will conduct a photo shoot for the preview publication later this summer plus film segments for a nationally syndicated College Football Preview show to air shortly before the season begins.</FONT></P> <P><FONT face=Arial size=2>Arizona's most recent Playboy All-America selection was junior tailback Clarence Farmer in 2002, following the year when he led the Pac-10 in rushing with 1,229 yards. He was one of three UA offensive players picked for the squads over the years, along with receiver Theopolis Bell and center Joe Tofflemire.</FONT></P> <P><FONT face=Arial size=2> <TABLE borderColor=black cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=2 align=left bgColor=white border=0> <P> <TBODY> <TR> <TD><IMG id=SCALEPHOTO alt="" src="http://www.nmnathletics.com.edgesuite.net/pics/100/PG/PGNIQPTHSGQPQTN.20060809210731.jpg"></TD></TR> <P></P> <P></P> <P></P> <P></P> <P></P> <P></P> <P></P> <P></P> <P></P></P></TABLE>A week ago Cason was named to the Ronnie Lott Trophy watch list and is a top contender for the Jim Thorpe Award.
