Two Longhorns make American-Statesman’s All-Big 12 team

Posted December 12th, 2014


All-Americans Malcom Brown and Jordan Hicks represent Texas on the American-Statesman’s All-Big 12 team.

Oklahoma led the way with six honorees. Co-league champions Baylor and TCU tied once more, each claiming five mentions. Kansas State had three — Tyler Lockett was honored at wide receiver and punt returner — and West Virginia two. Iowa State, Oklahoma State, and Texas Tech each had one nominee. Kansas had zero.

TCU collected three player of the year awards — coach (Gary Patterson), offensive (Trevone Boykin) and defensive (Paul Dawson). Oklahoma running back Samaje Perine, of Pflugerville Hendrickson, is the freshman of the year.


Tyler Lockett

The team was voted on by Statesman sports writers Kirk Bohls, Cedric Golden, Brian Davis, Ryan Autullo, Suzanne Halliburton, and Kevin Lyttle.
