Joe Dahl makes first All-America list

Despite missing Washington State's final four games of the 2015 season, left tackle Joe Dahl was named a Second Team All-American by USA Today Tuesday morning.

Here is the complete list of USA Today All-Americans. Here is a feature I wrote on the offensive lineman before the season began.

Dahl entered the season as one of the country's most highly regarded pass blockers and he lived up to the billing, playing 692 snaps and giving up just three sacks, two quarterback hits and 12 quarterback hurries against the Pac-12's cadre of pass rushers, according to data compiled by Pro Football Focus College.

Dahl was already named First Team All-Conference by the Pac-12's coaches. It remains to be seen whether he will be available for WSU's Dec. 26 Sun Bowl matchup against Miami.
