ASU guard Westerman earns second-team All-Pac-12 honors
Senior offensive guard Christian Westerman was a second-team selection on the All-Pac-12 football team announced Tuesday. He was the only Sun Devil on the first and second teams, which were selected in voting among conference coaches.
Six Sun Devils earned honorable mention: Senior defensive backs Jordan Simone and Lloyd Carrington, senior linebacker Antonio Longino, senior offensive guard Vi Teofilo, junior linebacker Salamo Fiso and sophomore defensive tackle Tashon Underwood.
The conference’s offensive and defensive players of the year and coach of the year were to be announced later in the day.
North Division champion Stanford led the way with seven first-team selections, followed by USC and Oregon with five apiece. Utah had four, Washington State three, California and Washington two apiece and UCLA one. ASU, Arizona, Colorado and Oregon State had no first-teamers.
Washington State sophomore Luke Falk and California junior Jared Goff were co-first-team choices at quarterback, ahead of Stanford senior Kevin Hogan. The first-team running backs were a pair of sophomores: Oregon’s Royce Freeman and Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey.
Utah’s Tom Hackett was the all-conference punter for a third consecutive year. The only other repeat selection was USC junior linebacker Su’a Cravens.
