Arizona Football was represented by seven student-athletes on the All-Pac-12 team and for the first time since 2010, the Wildcats have two players on the first team as Stanley Berryhill III (All-Purpose) and Kyle Ostendorp were selected. Berryhill and Ostendorp are Arizona’s first All-Pac-12 First Team selections since J.J. Taylor back in 2018.
Kyon Barrs was named to the second team while Lucas Havrisik, Trevon Mason, Josh McCauley and Anthony Pandy were named honorable mention.
Berryhill, who was named first team in the all-purpose section, was also named honorable mention as a wide receiver. The Tucson native and team captain finished second in the Pac-12 in total receptions (83) and fourth in receiving yards per game (62.0) while becoming the sixth player in Arizona history to catch 80 passes in one season. He finished the year with the third-most receptions by any Wildcats in one season and made an impact in special teams as he routinely made key tackles on the punt team as a gunner and had a crucial punt return to set up the game-winning score vs. Cal.
Ostendorp, who led the Pac-12 with an average punt of 49.2 yards and is the first Wildcat punter to be selected to the first team since Keenyn Crier in 2007, set a school record for average yards per punt in one season which was previously held by Danny Baugher who averaged 47.5 yards per punt back in 2005. However, Baugher punted just 37 times in 2005 while Ostendorp had 58 punts this season. Ostendorp had a Pac-12 best 28 yards of punts that traveled 50+ yards and downed 17 inside the 20. His longest punt of 71 yards back against San Diego State was the longest since Crier’s 83-yard punt back in 2007.
Barrs was a dominant force up front for the Wildcats this season as he led the team with five sacks and is the first Wildcat to be named to the second team since Drew Riggleman back in 2015. His five sacks were the most by a Wildcat since Kylan Wilborn had 7.5 back in 2017 and ranked fifth in the Pac-12 in sacks per game. Barrs was named Pac-12 Defensive Lineman of the Week back on Nov. 8 after helping lead Arizona to their first win of the season. Against Cal, he finished the game with a career-highs in both sacks (2.5) and tackles for a loss (3.0).
Havrisik, who is making his second-straight appearance on the All-Pac-12 team, finished the season with nine made field goals with a school-record 57-yarder against Utah. It was the second time in his career he made a field goal from 57 yards. Havrisik his career with five 50+ yard field goals, making him the only Wildcat to make more than three in their career in the last 25 years and was also lethal on kickoffs as he regularly put the ball through the opponent’s endzone.
Mason is making his first appearance on an All-Pac-12 team after an incredibly impactful season on the defensive line this year. He finished third on the team in tackles for loss with 7.5 while chipping in 2.5 sacks. He also led the team in quarterback hurries and broke up four passes from the defensive tackle position.
McCauley, who started every game of the season at center, earned his first All-Pac-12 selection as a senior captain. The four-year starter former walk-on finished his Arizona career with 39 starts at center and was a three-time Rimington Award Watchlist selection. McCauley was the epitome of consistency as he will finish his career missing just two games in his final four seasons as a Wildcat.
Rounding out Arizona’s representatives, Pandy is making his second appearance on the All-Pac-12 team as he was also named honorable mention last season. The team captain and team’s leading tackler, Pandy finished the season with a career-high 82 tackles for an average of 6.8 per game, the 11th-most in the Pac-12.
