Guess who Florida’s unanimous First Team All-American selection was?

Share this article

Florida Gators tight end Kyle Pitts was announced as a unanimous Walter Camp First Team All-American on Friday — his fifth such honor for his collegiate career.

He is now in good company, joinging linebacker Brandon Spikes (2008), defensive back Joe Haden (2009) and cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III (2015) as UF’s only unanimous picks, and is only the second tight end in school history to be selected to the First Team after the infamous Aaron Hernandez.

Pitts played in just eight games in 2020, missing games due to a concussion sustained from a hit that resulted in a targeting penalty against the Georgia Bulldogs while also opting out of the Cotton Bowl against the Oklahoma Sooners to prepare for the NFL draft. Nonetheless, he still grabbed 43 catches for 770 yards and 12 touchdowns — second-most all-time at the position in SEC history—with his yardage leading all tight ends and his scores tied for third-best in the country among all pass-catchers.

Adding to his many accomplishments, Florida’s former star tight end holds the all-time record for receiving yards among tight ends. He was also named a finalist for both the John Mackey Award and the Biletnikoff Award — the first tight end to be named a finalist for both awards in college football history — taking home the Mackey Award on Thursday.
