Five Longhorns Earn All-Big 12 Recognition

Three Longhorns named to 2016 first team, including unanimous selection RB D’Onta Foreman

The Associated Press announced its 2016 All-Big 12 Conference teams on Tuesday, recognizing five Texas Longhorns. Three players – RB D’Onta Foreman, OT Connor Williams and P Michael Dickson – were named first team selections, while two players – DE Breckyn Hager and LB Malik Jefferson – earned second team recognition.

Foreman, a unanimous first-team selection, was the nation’s leading rusher and totaled 2,028 yards on the ground despite playing in just 11 games. He averaged 184.4 yards per game in 2016, the 10th-most in NCAA history. He recorded 15 touchdowns and became just the ninth Power 5 Conference player in NCAA history to record 2,000 yards in a season without the help of a bowl game. He had at least 124 yards in all 11 games and eclipsed the 250-yard mark in three games. He received four votes for Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year.
