Arizona State tight end Zach Miller earned first-team All-Pac-10 honors on Monday, leading a group of 12 Sun Devil players who were recognized by the conference.
Miller, a junior, led Pac-10 tight ends in receptions (49), receiving yards (481) and touchdowns (four).
Three Devils made the second team: running back Ryan Torain, ASU’s first 1,000-yard rusher since 2001, center Mike Pollak and kick returner Terry Richardson.
Honorable mention selections were safety Josh Barrett, defensive end Kyle Caldwell, quarterback Rudy Carpenter, safety Zach Catanese, offensive lineman Paul Fanaika, defensive tackle Michael Marquardt, offensive lineman Brandon Rodd and cornerback Justin Tryon.
California running back Marshawn Lynch was named Pac-10 offensive player of the year, and Cal cornerback Daymeion Hughes received top defensive honors. Three players — Oregon cornerback Jarius Byrd, Southern California safety Taylor Mays and UCLA cornerback Alterraun Verner — shared the freshman of the year award.
The coach of the year is USC’s Pete Carroll.
