On Tuesday the Pac-12 conference announced its All-Conference Teams. Through the first two teams and honorable mentions 11 different Sun Devils made the list.
Wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk made the first team as a receiver and return specialist. Aiyuk’s 1192 yards through the air placed him second in the conference. He also averaged over 31 yards per kickoff return and his 63-yard punt return touchdown against Oregon State highlighted his abilities.
Despite some considering his junior campaign as a “down” year, Eno Benjamin was selected for the first team at running back. Benjamin’s 1083 yards, 10 touchdowns and 90.3 yards per game all ranked in the top four in the conference in terms of running backs.
Special special teamers were also found in Tempe. Punter Michael Turk and linebacker/special teams specialist Case Hatch were picked for the first team. Turk led the conference with a 46 yard per punt average, two more yards than any other punter. Hatch who made 11 tackles on the year made most of them on special teams.
Offensive lineman Cohl Cabral was the lone Sun Devil on the second team. Cabral showed his versatility by playing left tackle and center throughout the year. He was credited with just a single sack allowed.
Six Sun Devils; cornerbacks Kobe Williams and Jack Jones, offensive lineman Dohnovan West, wide receiver Frank Darby, linebacker Khaylan Kearse-Thomas and defensive lineman Jermayne Lole, were all honorable mentions.
