Gronkowski set Arizona freshman records for single-game and season pass receiving yards, with a 4-115 effort against Washington State and 525 total yards on 28 catches, the second-highest total for a tight end in UA history behind Mark Keel's 32 in 1980. He scored six touchdowns catching the ball, also a UA single-season high for the position and?tied for the No. 2 career figure for Arizona tight ends after just his true freshman season.

Crier, a redshirt, led the Pac-10 in punting with a 43.7-yard figure. Arizona leads the league in net punting at 38.1 yards, although bowl games will count and could affect that status. His average ties for fifth-best historically on the UA charts. He had the second-longest punt in UA history, an 83-yard blast against USC.

Redshirt freshman offensive guard Colin Bater earned third-team honors, while true freshman running back Nic Grigsby earned honorable mention from the organization.
