After a 10-2 regular season that featured a ranking as high as No. 7 in the AP poll, Washington State Cougars standouts Gardner Minshew II and Andre Dillard were named to the all-Pac-12 first team today.
Minshew, a graduate transfer senior, is the first WSU quarterback to be named first team since Luke Falk in 2015 after throwing for 4,477 yards and 36 touchdowns. Dillard, a redshirt senior, is probably the team’s best NFL prospect after a stellar season at left tackle.
Abraham Lucas and Logan Tago were named second-team all-conference selections; they also were joined by eight honorable mentions: sophomore punter Oscar Draguicevich III, freshman kick returner Travell Harris, junior center Frederick Mauigoa, senior linebacker Peyton Pelluer, junior safety Jalen Thompson, junior running back James Williams, junior special teams player Kainoa Wilson and sophomore Jahad Woods.
The offensive player of the year will be announced later tonight, and it would be fairly surprising if Minshew is not the winner there, also.
