Garnett, Hackett earn unanimous All-America honors

Dec 17, 2015

SAN FRANCISCO —The Pac-12 Conference had a strong presence on the college football All-America squads with four student-athletes earning first team honors. The list of players was led by STANFORD senior OL Joshua Garnett and UTAH senior P Tom Hackett who were unanimous selections.

It marks the ninth consecutive season that the Pac-12 has had a unanimous selection, and now have had five unanimous selections over the past two seasons.

Two other Pac-12 football players were consensus selections – UCLA senior PK Ka’imi Fairbairn and Stanford sophomore KR/AP Christian McCaffrey.

In addition to his consensus selection as a kick returner/all-purpose player, McCaffrey also was named first team running back by two additional organizations.

Over the last four seasons, 22 Pac-12 players have earned either unanimous or consensus All-America status.

To earn consensus honors, one must be selected first team on at least three of the five All-America teams and be listed on the most first-team All-America teams relative to other players at that position. For positions with more than one player represented on the first team, a corresponding number of players may earn a consensus billing. The organizations used in the consensus chart - American Football Coaches Association (AFCA), Associated Press (AP), Football Writers Association of America (FWAA), The Sporting News (SN), and Walter Camp Football Foundation (WC).
