SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Tom Hackett, former University of Utah punter, was named to CBS Sports’ All-Time All-America team with an honorable mention.

CBS Sports produced the team in honor of this year being the 150th year of college football.

Hackett was with the Utes from 2012 to 2015. During that time he won two Ray Awards for being the best punter in college football.

He has a spot on the Pac-12 All-Century team along with a spot in all Utah fans’ hearts for being the lovable Aussie punter.

During Hackett’s career at Utah, he punted for 10,933 yards.

Tom Hackett is a KSL Sports contributor and host of Special Forces Gang (SFG) with former Utah kicker Andy Phillips and Dine & Dash. You can follow him on Twitter, @TomCantHackett, for all of the Utes information and comedy you need.
