Pair of Huskies named to AP’s midseason All-America team

Washingon lands one player on the first team and another on the second team

Staff and wire reports

A pair of Washington Huskies were named to The Associated Press midseason All-America football team released Tuesday.

Sophomore place-kicker Peyton Henry made the first team and senior offensive tackle Trey Adams landed a spot on the second team.

Henry has made all 14 of his field-goal attempts this season, with a long of 49 yards, and is 29-for-29 on extra-point attempts.

The first team is highlighted by LSU quarterback Joe Burrow, who is on a record-breaking pace during the first half of the season.

No. 2 LSU, No. 6 Wisconsin and No. 12 Oregon each placed three players on the first team, tying for the most of any school on the team presented by Regions Bank.

Burrow, whose 79.6% completion rate would be an NCAA record if he can keep it up, is joined on the first team by Tigers defensive backs Grant Delpit and freshman Derek Stingley.

Taylor, who leads the nation with 18 touchdowns, is joined by Badgers center Tyler Biadasz and linebacker Zack Baun. Oregon, which plays at Washington on Saturday, has two first-team offensive lineman in tackle Penei Sewell and guard Shane Lemieux, plus tight end Jacob Breeland, who was lost for the season to an injury in his last game.

No. 4 Ohio State placed a total of five players on the first and second teams, most of any school. Buckeyes defensive end Chase Young and cornerback Jeff Okudah were first-team selections. No. 1 Alabama had four overall selections, including quarterback Tua Tagovailoa on the second team.

Oklahoma State’s Chuba Hubbard, the nation’s leading rusher, joins Taylor in the first-team backfield.
