New, 5 comments

Jose Borregales, Jaelan Phillips and Lou Hedley were all named AP All-Americans on Monday.

The regular season accolades continue for several Miami Hurricanes, as kicker Jose Borregales, defensive end Jaelan Phillips and punter Lou Hedley were all named to the AP All-America team on Monday.

Borregales was named first-team All-American, part of a very successful season, which was his lone year playing for the Canes. Borregales went 18-20 in his field goals in the regular season, and a perfect 57-57 on extra points. His longest kick of the year came against Louisville in week two, that one from 57 yards.

Last week, Borregales was named a finalist for the Lou Groza Award, which is given to the nations best kicker. He was also named first-team All-ACC. Borregales is the first Miami player to be named 1st-team AP All-American since 2004.

Phillips’ story is well known, a former namer-one recruit coming out of high school, transferred to Miami after spending two injury-filled years at UCLA, and nearly quit football. However, he put together a monster 2020 season, where he finished with 45 tackles, 8 sacks and 15.5 TFLs. Phillips announced that he’ll be declaring early for the NFL Draft.

Hedley, in his 2nd season at Miami, continued to a reliable weapon at punter. In 2020, Hedley averaged 47.3 yards per punt, which was second in the nation. Hedley was named a finalist for the Ray Guy Award for best punter.
