TEMPE, Ariz. - Arizona State University senior defensive lineman Will Sutton has been named to the Associated Press First Team All-America team for the second straight season, the publication announced Tuesday.

Sutton is the 15th AP First Team All-America selection in school history and only the third Sun Devil to earn the honors in back-to-back seasons, joining safeties David Fulcher and Mike Richardson. Sutton is also one of just three players on this year’s team to also make the first team in 2012.
