Five Pac-12 players named to Freshman All-American Team

Five Pac-12 freshman were named to the ESPN freshman All-American team on Monday.

The five players were: Washington TE Hunter Bryant, Stanford OT Walker Little, Arizona LB Colin Schooler, Arizona LB Tony Fields and Colorado K James Stefanou.

Bryant became one of Jake Browning’s go-to targets during the season, before suffering a season-ending leg injury. He ended the season with 22 catches for 331 yards.

Little was a standout on a Stanford offensive line that helped junior RB Bryce Love become a Heisman Trophy finalist and Doak Walker Award winner. Little started 8 games for the Cardinal this season.

Arizona’s combination of Schooler and Fields was magnificent this season and should be quite the tandem for the next couple of seasons. No freshman in the country finished with more tackles-for-loss than Schooler (13.5). He also had four sacks and two interceptions this season. Fields led the Wildcats with 91 tackles and also had four sacks.

Stefanou kicked 17 field goals for Colorado this season, including a 53-yarder against Arizona State. Stefanou, a native of Australia, is 30 years old.
