LB Shaq Thompson, DT Danny Shelton named midseason All-America by ESPN

ESPN continues to pile midseason accolades upon Washington defensive players, as linebacker Shaq Thompson and defensive tackle Danny Shelton were each named to ESPN's midseason All-America team.

What's interesting is that ESPN employee Mel Kiper named outside linebacker Hau'oli Kikaha his midseason national defensive player of the year, but Kikaha is absent from ESPN's All-America team.

ESPN includes four other Pac-12 players on its All-America list: USC DE Leonard Williams, Oregon CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, Stanford safety Jordan Richards and Utah punter Tom Hackett.
