March 5, 2007

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Defensive back Robson Noel was honored Monday by being named to the Don Hansen Football Gazette Football Championship Series honorable mention All-America team.

A native of Pompano Beach, Fla., Noel earned the honors after an impressive campaign in the JU secondary. Stepping into the starting role at cornerback early in the fall camp, Noel finished the season third on the team in tackles with 55 and led the squad with 12 pass breakups.

Noel becomes just the second Dolphin in school history to earn All-America honors. Ryan Feely was the first, earning third team honors in 2004.

"This is a tremendous honor for Robson and is well deserved after the season he had," said JU head coach Kerwin Bell. "We're looking forward to bigger and better things from him in the next couple of years."
