The American Athletic Conference announced its fifth anniversary team during AAC Media Days in Providence, RI. on Monday.

Among the 30 players represented were three former USF standouts - linebacker Auggie Sanchez, running back Marlon Mack, and tackle Kofi Amichia.

Other Bulls up for nomination but did not receive enough votes were:

  • Quinton Flowers at QB (Kennan Reynolds/Navy).
  • Jeremi Hall at offensive guard (E.K. Binns, Adam West/Navy).
  • Aaron Lynch and Deadrin Senat on the defensive line (Matt Ioaniddis/Temple; Justin Lawler/SMU, Ed Oliver/Houston; Hasson Reddick/Temple; Marcus Smith/Lousiville).
  • Deatrick Nichols at cornerback (Jacoby Glenn/C.; Mike Hughes/C.; Parry Nickerson/Tulane).
  • Emilio Nadelman at kicker (Jake Elliott/Memphis).
  • Mattias Ciabbati at punter (Tom Hornsey/Memphis).

Notable voting turnout includes:

  • Memphis sweeping Special Teams with Elliot, Hornsey, and Tony Pollard taking kicker, punter and return specialist respectively.
  • C. had both of their corners (Hughes and Glenn) selected to the roster, as well as Shaquem Griffin, Jordan Aikens, and Clayton Geathers.
  • Every team who has fielded a football team for the AAC had at least one player selected, except for Rutgers.
  • Temple, C., and Memphis had five players selected, USF and Navy both had three, SMU with two, and everyone else had one.
