SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Associated Press announced their All-Americans following the conclusion of the 2018 college football regular season.

The state of Utah had three representatives named as All-Americans, two from Utah and one from Utah State.


Mitch Wishnowsky – Utah

Wishnowsky was named an AP All-American for the third time in his career. He was named to the first team in 2016, the same season that he won the Ray Guy Award that is given to the nation’s best punter. The senior was selected to the third team last season where he finished as a finalist for the Ray Guy Award. Wishnowsky was a finalist for the award this season as well.

He finished in the top half of the Pac-12 Conference in every punting statistical category.

Matt Gay – Utah

Gay was named a third team All-American by the Associated Press. In 2017, he was selected to the first team when he won the Lou Groza Award that is given to the nation’s top place kicker.

He led the Pac-12 in field goals made (24), attempted (29), longest field goal made (55), kicks made from 30 to 39 yards(10-of-10), field goals made from 40 to 49 yards (7-of-10), and 50 yards or more (3-of-5). Gay was second in the conference in field goal percentage (82.8).


David Woodward – Utah State

The Aggie linebacker was named a third-team AP All-American. He finished the regular season with 124 tackles, which is good for first place in the Mountain West Conference and 10th in the nation. Woodward led Utah State in tackles, tackles for loss and forced fumbles. The sophomore is second in sacks and also has an interception.

He had seven games where he recorded double digit tackles, including 20 tackles at Colorado State.
