Paea Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year
He also was co-recipient of the Morris Trophy in 2009, awarded annually to league's top defensive lineman as voted on by the opposing offensive linemen.
Paea, a two-time All-Pac-10 First Team honoree, is joined on the team by junior running back Jacquizz Rodgers.
Rodgers is the first three-time Pac-10 First Team selection ever for a Beaver and also is only the third running back in conference history to make first team on three occasions, joining Charles White of USC (1977-79) and Napoleon Kaufman of Washington (1992-94). Rodgers is the sixth-leading rusher in conference history with 3,877 yards.
Senior center Alex Linnenkohl earned second team honors, while senior cornerback James Dockery, senior defensive end Gabe Miller, senior linebackers Keith Pankey and Dwight Roberson, junior tackle Mike Remmers, sophomore linebacker Uani Unga (special teams) and sophomore cornerback Jordan Poyer (kick returner) were all named honorable mention.
