Thursday was big day for Utah football players and national post season awards. Of course, Tom Hackett was the headliner by winning the Ray Guy Award. Earlier in the same day, Hackett was named a 1st team All-American on the SBNation, CBSSports.com, Scout.com and Walter Camp All-America team.

Hackett was joined by teammate Nate Orchard on the Walter Camp, Scout.com team and the SB Nation team. Orchard was also named the Ted Hendricks defensive end of the year, just a day ago.

And to round out the All-Americans, Kaelin Clay was named to CBSSports.com first team, and 2nd team on Scout.com as a returner.

All three players were named 1st team All-Pac-12 just last week.

This is the first time in Utah football history that the Utes have had two players on the Walter Camp 1st team.
