First-team selections Walker Little and Paulson Adebo were among 13 Stanford student-athletes to earn All-Pac-12 football honors as announced by the conference office on Tuesday.

Junior quarterback K.J. Costello, senior wide receiver JJ Arcega-Whiteside, junior tight end Kaden Smith and junior offensive guard Nate Herbig were second-team offense selections, while senior punter Jake Bailey and junior kicker Jet Toner were second-team specialists.

Fifth-year senior cornerback Alijah Holder, senior running back Bryce Love, fifth-year senior linebacker Bobby Okereke, sophomore tight end Colby Parkinson and junior defensive end Jovan Swann earned honorable mention.

A sophomore from Houston, Little has started all 12 games for the Cardinal at left tackle. Last year's Pac-12 Freshman Offensive Co-Player of the Year has protected the blind side of Costello, who has produced the third-most passing yards and second-most touchdowns in a season in school history.

Adebo, a sophomore from Mansfield, Texas, playing in his first season, has started 11 games in the Cardinal defensive backfield. He set a school record and leads the country with 23 passes defended (19 breakups and four interceptions). He also set the school standard and ranks second in the nation in pass breakups.

Bailey is a three-time All-Pac-12 selection, while this marked the second career all-conference accolades for Herbig, Arcega-Whiteside, Toner, Love and Okereke.

Stanford (8-4) will take on Pitt (7-6) in the Hyundai Sun Bowl on Dec. 31 in El Paso, Texas. Kickoff is set for 11 a.m. and will be broadcast on CBS.
