Mason Crosby, Colorado's all-time leading scorer and the best place-kicker in the program's history, was named to the Football Writers Association 75th Anniversary All-America team. 

Crosby was the only Buff to make the team released Thursday. He was named second team behind former Georgia kicker Kevin Butler and ahead of third-team selection Tony Franklin of Texas A&M. 

Nominations for the 75-member team from were accepted from all FWAA members earlier this year and a Blue Ribbon panle of past FWAA presidents, current board members and officers selected the team this summer. In order to be considered, a player must have been selected to a previous FWAA All-America team from the past 75 years. 

Crosby, who came to CU from Georgetown, Texas, in 2003, played four seasons for the Buffs and became the seventh two-time All-American in the program's history as a senior in 2006. He made 12 field goals in his career of 50 yards or longer, including tying the program's record for the longest kick with a 60-yard score. His 58-yard kick at Miami in 2005 was the longest at sea level in NCAA history.
