(Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images)One freshman quarterback—Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence—is at center stage of the college football world tonight, but he was joined by Nebraska’s Adrian Martinez in this year’s FWAA Freshman All-American team.Nebraska didn’t have the fastest start to Scott Frost’s tenure, but did come on late in the year.Much of that improvement had to do with the freshman quarterback.Martinez was injured late in the loss to Colorado, and missed the following game against Troy, another Huskers loss.He was healthy for the rest of the season though, and put up extremely strong numbers on the year.Martinez completed just under 65-percent of his passes for 2,617 yards, 17 touchdowns, and eight interceptions on the year.He is also a major factor on the ground, finishing second on the team with 629 yards and eight touchdowns.Adrian Martinez split the first-team designation in the Football Writers’ Association of America Freshman All-American team.The two were joined by standouts including Purdue WR Rondale Moore, Alabama WR Jaylen Waddle and DB Patrick Surtain II, Georgia OLs Cade Mays and Isaiah Wilson, and Texas DB Caden Sterns.?
