Beavs Jermar Jefferson Named AP’s Pac-12 Co-Offensive Player of the Year

The Associated Press announced their All-Pac-12 team and their Pac-12 individual awards on Christmas Day.

There were several representatives from the state of Oregon including at universities other than Oregon State and the University of Oregon.

However, let’s start with the Beavers and Ducks.

Oregon State star running back Jermar Jefferson was selected as the conference offensive player of the year alongside Colorado’s RB Jarek Broussard.

Obviously that means Jefferson also made the AP’s All-Pac-12 First Team.

Meanwhile, six Oregon Ducks were selected to either the All-Pac-12 First and Second Teams, three to each team.

First Team:

  • Offense – Guard, Ryan Walk (RS-Jr.)
  • Defense – DE, Kayvon Thibodeaux (Soph.), CB Mykeal Wright (Soph.)

Second Team:

  • Offense – Guard, T.J. Bass (Jr.), QB Tyler Shough (RS-Soph.)
  • Defense – CB Deommodore Lenoir (Sr.)

Also, five other players with Oregon roots earned spots on the All-Pac-12 teams.

  • First Team Defense:
    • USC Safety Talanoa Hufanga, Jr. (Corvallis)*
    • USC DT Marlon Tuipulotu, Jr. (Independence)
    • UCLA DT Osa Odighizuwa, Sr. (Portland)
    • Washington Safety Elijah Molden, Sr. (West Linn)
  • Second Team Offense:
    • Washington OT Jaxson Kirkland, Sr. (Portland)

*Hufanga was the only unanimous selection.
