Lucas, Draguicevich III headline Cougars’ All-Pac-12 accolades

SAN FRANCISCO — Eleven Washington State Cougars received All-Pac-12 Conference honors led by second-team selections right tackle Abraham Lucas and punter Oscar Draguicevich III, the conference office announced Tuesday.

Nine Cougars received All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention; wide receiver Renard Bell, center Brian Greene, wide receiver Travell Harris, defensive back Daniel Isom, edge Brennan Jackson, kick Blake Mazza, left tackle Liam Ryan, defensive back Jaylen Watson and linebacker Jahad Woods.

Lucas earns his third straight second-team selection after starting all four games at right tackle for the Cougars who finished third in the league in passing offense while also rushing for eight touchdowns in just four games.

Draguicevich III earns his first career all-conference honor after finishing the regular season third in the country and second in the Pac-12 with a 46.7 average, the highest punting average in WSU single-season history. In just 19 punts, the redshirt senior from Hutto, Texas put eight inside the 20 and recorded five of 50-plus yards including a long of 78, the seventh-longest in WSU history. Draguicevich III, who is the first Cougar punter to receive first or second team honors since Jeff Banks earned second team accolades in 1997, finished his career with the best punting average (45.7) in Washington State history.
