Peat, Montgomery named to All-American team


Andrus Peat and Ty Montgomery earned All-American honors from CBS Sports on Wednesday.

Peat was a second-team selection at offensive tackle with Montgomery claiming second-team honors as an all-purpose performer.

Peat anchored the Cardinal's offensive line at left tackle. He was the lone starter from last season's team on the line, as he joined four other juniors on a unit that helped the Cardinal average 154.8 yards/game on the ground.

With Peat leading the way, Stanford allowed only 22 sacks this season, 18 fewer than the Cardinal recorded on defense.

Peat was an Outland Trophy quarterfinalist, member of the All-Pac-12 first team and was on the USA Today, and Athlon's preseason All-America first teams.

Peat has started 26 consecutive games since taking over the starting left tackle job for the 2013 season opener against San Jose State.

Montgomery led the Cardinal with 61 catches and 604 receiving yards. He averaged 128.6 all-purpose yards/game, bolstered by 21.6 punt return yards/game. On 12 punt returns, Montgomery averaged 19.8 yards/return with two touchdowns.

Montgomery has scored four rushing touchdowns, 15 receiving touchdowns, two punt return touchdowns and three kickoff return touchdowns in his Stanford career, adding up to 24 all-purpose scores.

The Cardinal is 13-2 overall and 10-1 since 2013 when Montgomery scores at least one touchdown in a game.
