Brian Price and Kai Forbath have been named to the AFCA Coaches' All-American list for the 2009 football season. This is the first AFCA All-American honor for both Price and Forbath.

Only Alabama (4) and Texas (3) have more honorees on this year's list. UCLA and Georgia are tied with two honorees. Stanford is the only other Pac-10 school with a student-athlete being honored by the AFCA (Toby Gerhart).

Forbath, a redshirt junior and finalist for the Lou Groza Award, has had a sensational junior campaign for the Bruins. He is the No. 2 kicker in the nation with 2.17 field goals per game and his .897 percentage (more than 20 attempts). He has connected on 26 of 29 field goals this season. His only misses have come from distances of 51, 52 and 51-yards out. Forbath has connected on 35 straight field goal attempts under 50-yards, dating back to the Oregon game in 2008.

Price, a true junior, has recorded 34.5 tackles for a loss in his last 21 games, including 4.0 against Arizona State and Tennessee, 3.0 at Washington State and 2.0 against Oregon and at USC. He has 22.5 tackles for loss in 12 games this season and ranks first in the Pac-10 (by 7.5 TFL) and is tied for third in the NCAA. He ranks second all-time in UCLA history with 43.5 tackles for loss, and is also second on the single season list with 22.5.
