Temple's Jarrett named to PFW All-AMerica Team

Temple senior safety Jaiquawn Jarrett has been named to the 2010 Pro Football Weekly All-America Team, managing editor Mike Holbrook announced.

The 22-member team, along with specialists and Honorable Mention selections, honors the most talented players in college football and is determined based on feedback from NFL evaluators taking into consideration a player’s pure talent and contribution to his team. Pro Football Weekly places an extra premium on true talent and draft value in the selection process, including the qualities of toughness, competitiveness, and work ethic.

Jarrett had already received the 2010 Owl Award as Temple’s most valuable player, as well as the Captains’ Award, at the team’s annual banquet.

A two-time first-team All-MAC honoree, team captain started all 12 games at free safety in 2010 and played in every game of his collegiate career with 43 starts.  The Owls’ top defender with 74 tackles, Jarrett also had two interceptions, two break-ups, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery this season.

Named to the prestigious Jim Thorpe Award Watch List, Jarrett was the recipient of the 2010 National Football Foundation & College Football Hall of Fame Scholar-Athlete and the 2010 Enterprise Spirit &Sportsmanship Awards.

On Temple’s all-time charts, Jarrett finished his career ranked No. 9 in interceptions (9) and No. 11 in tackles (299).
