Utah Utes junior punter Tom Hackett and senior defensive lineman Nate Orchard were named Associated Press All-Americans on Tuesday.
Hackett joins defensive lineman Star Lotulelei (2012), kicker Louie Sakoda (2008), offensive lineman Jordan Gross (2002) and defensive lineman Luther Ellis (1994) as the only Utes to be named to the AP All-America team.
Orchard, who was named to the AP's second team, also won the Pac-12's Morris Trophy, which is given to the conference's top defensive lineman. The honor is unique in that the votes come from the league's starting offensive lineman, not coaches or credentialed media members.
