The Pac-12 has announced its players of the year and all-conference teams.  Ka'Deem Carey has become the first player in Arizona Wildcats history to take home Offensive Player of the Year.

Carey was also the only Wildcat to make an all-conference team, being joined by Washington's Bishop Sankey at running back on the First Team All-Pac-12 list.

Carey, who finished the regular season with 1,716 yards and 46 rushing TDs, is the all-time rushing yards leader and has the most total touchdowns in Arizona history.

This season, Carey played in 11 games, and rushed for at least 119 yards in each and every one of them.  He rushed for 17 TDs, caught another TD, and averaged 5.33 yards per carry.

Arizona State's Will Sutton took home Defensive Player of the Year for the second straight season, while Todd Graham won Coach of the Year.  Myles Jack from UCLA won both offensive and defensive freshman of the year.

Other Wildcats to be honored were Marquis Flowers, Tevin Hood, Nate Phillips, Jared Tevis, and Scooby Wright.  They were all named All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention.
