UCLA senior strong safety Chris Horton has been selected to the Playboy pre-season All-America team.
Horton and the rest of the Playboy team will be together at a Phoenix-area resort this coming weekend for a photo shoot and to tape segments for the Playboy football pre-season television special.
Horton was UCLA's leading tackler in 2006. One of the hardest hitters in the nation at his position, Horton finished the year with 95 tackles and led the team in tackles in six of the last eight games (including ties). He also ranked second on the team with three interceptions.
Last Saturday (May 5), Shelter 37, a non-profit organization run by former Bruin safety James Washington, staged a free clinic for young boys and girls at Los Angeles Southwest College.
UCLA head football coach Karl Dorrell and the entire Bruin football staff donated their time to work with close to 500 youngsters, eighth grade and younger, at the clinic. Shelter 37 provided free lunches for the participants.
Senior defensive end Bruce Davis will be featured on a regional cover of Street & Smith's College Football magazine. The publication sent a photographer to Los Angeles to shoot the cover art in mid April.
Senior Chris Joseph is one of 46 players on the 2007 Rimington Trophy Spring Watch List. This is the eighth year the award recognizes the most outstanding center in college football.
