Nine members of the UCLA football team have earned All-Pac-10 honors by vote of the league's coaches.

Junior safety Rahim Moore and junior linebacker Akeem Ayers were selected All-Pac-10 first team. Moore was one of just three players who also earned first-team acclaim in 2009.

Senior place kicker Kai Forbath, sophomore running back Johnathan Franklin and sophomore punter Jeff Locke were voted to the second team.

Junior running back/special teams performer Derrick Coleman, junior safety Tony Dye, senior center Ryan Taylor and junior linebacker Sean Westgate were named honorable mention.

Moore, who has made 14 interceptions in his three-year career, including a nation-best 10 in 2009, ranked third on the team this season with 77 tackles.

Ayers, one of the most versatile defenders in the nation, ranked fourth on the squad with 68 tackles, first with two fumble recoveries, tied for the team lead with 4.0 sacks and ranked second with 10.0 tackles for loss, two interceptions and two forced fumbles.

Franklin is UCLA's first 1,000-yard rusher since Chris Markey in 2006. He finished the season with 1,127 yards, the 10th-highest single-season total in UCLA history. He ranked fifth in the Pac-10 with his average of 93.92 yards per game. He also led the Bruins with eight touchdowns.

Forbath concluded his career with 85 field goals in 101 attempts, tying the UCLA record set by John Lee in 1982-85. He also finished No. 2 (tied) in career scoring with 357 points. This season, he made 13 of 18 field goal attempts and all 27 PATs for 66 points.

Locke led the Pac-10 and was fifth in the NCAA with his punting average of 45.84 and helped UCLA rank second nationally in net punting.

Coleman was UCLA's second-leading rusher with 487 yards, averaging 5.9 yards per attempt, and ranked second with five touchdowns. He also made 10 tackles on special teams.

Dye led the Bruins and ranked fourth (tied) in the Pac-10 with 96 tackles, an average of 8.00 per game. He also broke up a team-high nine passes and made his first career interception versus USC.

Taylor started all 12 games at center and anchored an offensive line that helped the Bruins average over 175 rushing yards per game. He was selected the Pac-10 Offensive Player of the Week for his efforts in the Bruins' 34-12 victory at Texas.

Westgate ranked second on the team and eighth (tied) in the Pac-10 with his 90 tackles, an average of 7.50 per game. He led the Bruins with 11.0 tackles for loss and tied for the team lead with 4.0 sacks. He also broke up seven passes.
