Defensive lineman Tyler Johnson is among the Arizona State Sun Devils represented on the All-Pac-12 teams for the 2021 football season, earning first team honors.

ASU was also represented by running back Rachaad White, offensive tackle Kellen Diesch and center Dohnovan West, who all made the All-Pac-12 Second Team on offense. Making All-Pac-12 Second Team on defense are Sun Devil lineman D.J. Davidson and linebacker Darien Butler.

The rival Arizona Wildcats had representation on the All-Pac-12 teams for the first time since 2018.

Arizona punter Kyle Ostendorp and punt return man Stanley Berryhill III made the All-Pac-12 First team, with defensive lineman Kyon Barrs making the All-Pac-12 Second Team. Berryhill made the list as an all-purpose/special teams player.

For ASU, the 6-foot-4, 280-pound Johnson made 21 tackles with four sacks and a forced fumble this season. He added three passes defensed.

White averaged 5.5 yards per carry in piling up 1,006 yards and 15 touchdowns this season. He is among 18 players nationally to rush for 15 or more scores. The running back added 43 catches for 456 receiving yards and another touchdown.

Davidson posted 21 tackles with 0.5 sacks and four passes defensed this past season, while Butler added 32 tackles, two sacks and three interceptions.

It’s the first time since 2010 (WR Juron Criner and DE Brooks Reed) that the Wildcats were represented by multiple players on the All-Pac-12 First Team.

Ostendorp averaged 49.2 yards per punt, seventh-most in the nation. Eighteen of those went inside the 20-yard line, and he posted a long of 71 yards.

Berryhill averaged 6.3 yards on 19 punt returns with a long of 51 in addition to his 744 yards on 83 receptions that earned him an honorable mention as a receiver.
