Wnek, a 6-foot-3, 240-pound junior, was selected to the team as a tight end. He has played in all nine games this season and made four starts. Wnek plays four different positions as a vital part of Arizona's run-blocking scheme and has seen action on 60 percent of the squad's total downs this year when including his special teams duties.
It is the second time in his career that Wnek has been so honored. He earned second team Academic All-District honors in 1999 as well.
The Verizon Academic All-District VIII Football Team was voted on by members of the College Sports Information Directors of America.
