Arizona State's top defensive player has received another postseason acknowledgement for his impressive junior campaign.

Arizona State defensive lineman Will Sutton has been named to the 2012 AFCA FBS Coaches' All-America Team, according to the school's athletic department. Sutton is the 11th Sun Devil to be named to the team, which has been around since 1945. This adds to a growing list of accolades for the junior, who is a semifinalist for the Bednarik Award and was name the Pat Tillman Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year on Monday.

Sutton has been a force in the middle all season for ASU, and has dominated in both the run and pass game. He has posted 10.5 sacks, 20 tackles for loss, three forced fumbles, and five pass breakups. He was a key figure in ASU finishing first in the Pac-12 in passing efficiency defense.

The Sun Devils finished the regular season with a victory over the rival Arizona Wildcats. ASU's seven wins is an improvement over last season with the bowl game left to play.
