BOISE – Boise State defensive end Samuel Ukwuachu was named Freshman All-America by the Football Writers Association of America, the organization announced Monday.

He registered 35 tackles (16 solo), and ranked third on the team in both tackles-for-loss (7.0) and sacks (4.5) in his debut season with the Broncos.

Ukwuachu also recovered three fumbles, tied for the ninth-most in the country, and recovered another.

He was one of just three student-athletes from the Mountain West to earn FWAA Freshman All-America honors.
