UCLA freshman Myles Jack makes Pac-12 history

UCLA freshman Myles Jack has made Pac-12 history. Jack is the first player to ever be named the conference’s Offensive and Defensive Freshman of the Year.

The Bruins’ two-way threat entered the season as a linebacker. He started in 11 games and recorded 71 total tackles, good for fourth best on the team. Jack also led the team with 10 pass break ups.

Coach Jim Mora inserted Jack into the lineup as a running back against Arizona. In that game Jack amassed 120 yards on only six carries. He played four games as running back, totaling 267 yards on 37 touches. Jack’s seven rushing touchdowns were good for second-best on the team.

Throughout the season Jack has remained the consummate teammate, telling coaches that he would play wherever they needed him.
