Zach Frazier has been named a preseason All-American by the Walter Camp Football Foundation. The Walter Camp All-American team is the nation’s oldest and the 2022 team will be the 132nd such team.
2022 Walter Camp Preseason All-American
— West Virginia Football (@WVUfootball) June 27, 2022
Frazier finds himself on the second team and the lone West Virginia player on either of the two teams. He is one of only four Big 12 players to make either of teams. The other three players are first-team running back Bijan Robinson (Texas), second-team wide receiver Xavier Worthy (Texas) and second-team defensive lineman Jaxon Player (Baylor).
In terms of 2022 opponents, the preseason All-Americans from Texas and Baylor are only joined by a lone preseason All-American from Pittsburgh in second-team defensive lineman Calijah Kancey. Virginia Tech did not have a representative on the list.
Frazier was a 2021 Walter Camp Second-Team All-America selection so the inclusion on this list is unsurprising. Only eight offensive lineman receive the accolade alongside two centers who are grouped separately. In total, 50 players make up the two teams.
West Virginia has had a Walter Camp All-American in each of the last six seasons. The last offensive lineman to earn the accolade prior to Frazier was was Colton McKivitz in 2019.
Frazier is coming off a season in which he played in all 841 snaps this season and put up 60 knockdowns and 28 great blocks. He returns alongside the rest of the starting offensive line from the 2021 season.
