Dec. 2, 2002

Cornerback Ricky Manning, Jr., punter Nate Fikse, offensive tackle Mike Saffer and tight end Mike Seidman have been named first-team All-Pacific-10 Conference by vote of the league's coaches.

Five Bruins were selected All-Pac-10 second-team -- true freshman tailback Tyler Ebell, offensive tackle Bryce Bohlander, offensive guard Eyoseph Efseaff, defensive end Dave Ball and linebacker Marcus Reese.

Five Bruins earned honorable mention - wide receivers Craig Bragg and Tab Perry, linebacker Brandon Chillar, defensive tackle Steve Morgan and offensive guard Steven Vieira.
