Fomer UConn FB Sherman earns 2nd team All-Pro recognition

Former UConn star Anthony Sherman was named as the second-team fullback on the Associated Press 2014 All-Pro squad.

Green Bay's John Kuhn made the first team with 18 votes. Sherman finished with 14 votes, edging out Marcel Reece of the Oakland Raiders who had 12 votes.

Sherman played all 16 games in his second season with the Kansas City Chiefs helping open up holes for Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis. He carried the ball twice for eight yards and had 10 catches for 71 yards including an 11-yard touchdown catch in a win over San Diego on Oct. 19. He was also a standout on special teams and rated as the best blocking fullback in the NFL by the Pro Football Focus site which had Sherman as  the starting fullback on its All-Pro team.

Despite these two honors, Sherman was named selected to play in the Pro Bowl.
