Iowa State wide receiver Xavier Hutchinson (8) catches the ball in the end zone over Southeast Missouri State safety Lawrence Johnson (7) during the Iowa State, Southeast Missouri State game on Saturday, September 3, 2022 at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames, Iowa. The Cyclones are up 21-10 against the Redhawks.

Another week, another postseason honor for Xavier Hutchinson.

The senior wide receiver from Jacksonville was named a first-team All-American on Monday by the Associated Press. This is the third straight year Iowa State has had an offensive player named a first-team All-American by the AP.

On his way to being named a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award, Hutchinson broke Iowa State’s single-season record with 107 receptions while tallying 1,071 yards and seven touchdowns. His 254 career receptions are another Iowa State record and are the most in Big 12 history by a three-year player.

Hutchinson is the sixth Iowa State player to earn AP All-American honors since 2019, joining former teammates Breece Hall (first-team, 2020-21), Charlie Kolar (third-team, 2019-20), Mike Rose (second-team, 2020), JaQuan Bailey (third-team, 2020) and Will McDonald (third-team, 2021).

He’s also the sixth Cyclone to be a first-team AP All-American, joining Fred Poole (1934), Ed Bock (1938), John Van Sicken (1964) Troy Davis (1995-95) and Hall.
