Ben Lauer, a redshirt offensive tackle who started four games for the Gophers, was named to the Football Writers Association 2013 All-America freshman team.
Lauer made his starting debut against San Jose State, and in that game the Gophers rushed for 353 yards, their most since 2005. Incidentally, now that tight end Brandon Lingen has committed to Minnesota, Wayzata football coach Brad Anderson will have four players on the Gophers squad: Lauer, Lingen, linebacker Chip Wipson and wide receiver Jeff Borchardt.
