Utah punter Tom Hackett has put together a fantastic college career in his time as a Ute. The 2014 Ray Guy Award winner and a 2015 finalist for the award, has been named to the Pac-12 All-Century Football Team.
The Pac-12 All-Century team is littered with football legends like John Elway, Ronnie Lott, Marcus Allen and Jim Plunkett all to be coached by USC’s John McKay.
Hackett is the youngest member named to the team and the only current Pac-12 player.
“I’m very honored and privileged to be named within this team. This will be something I will look back on for the rest of my existence. I’m not entirely sure to whom I owe for this honor, to be included with such legends in the game. Thank you Pac-12!” Hackett Said.
A voting panel of 119 former players, coaches and media selected 50 players and one coach to the team based on their accomplishments during their collegiate careers. In addition, the panel could only take into consideration individuals whose collegiate careers at a school occurred while the institution was a member of the conference. The Utes joined the Pac-12 in 2011.
As well as being the 2014 Ray Guy Award winner Hackett is also a two time All-Pac-12 1st Team in 2013 & 2014 and was a Consensus All-American in 2014. With the 2015 award season only just under way there could be more accolades to come.
