Hau’oli Kikaha is unanimous All-America selection

It’s official: Huskies linebacker Hau’oli Kikaha is UW’s first unanimous All-America selection since safety Lawyer Milloy in 1995, and just the fifth unanimous selection in UW history.

To become a unanimous All-American, a player must be named first-team by the following five outlets: Associated Press, Football Writers Association of America, American Football Coaches Association, The Sporting News, and the Walter Camp Football Foundation. Any player named first-team by at least three of those outlets can claim the “consensus” All-America tag, which Kikaha had already achieved.
