    13 Horned Frogs Receive Big 12 Honors

    Washington Named Big 12 Defensive Freshman of the Year

    IRVING, Texas -- Thirteen TCU football players have received All-Big 12 recognition from the conference's head coaches with Ar'Darius Washington being named the Big 12 Defensive Freshman of the Year.

    Defensive tackle Ross Blacklock, cornerback Jeff Gladney, safety Trevon Moehrig, place-kicker Jonathan Song and linebacker Garret Wallow were first-team selections. Named to the second team were Jalen Reagor, at both wide receiver and punt returner/kickoff returner, and tight end Pro Wells. Honorable-mention selections were running back Darius Anderson, wide receiver Taye Barber, defensive tackle Corey Bethley and offensive guard Cordel Iwuagwu.

    Washington is the third Horned Frog to be Big 12 Defensive Freshman of the Year in TCU's eight seasons in the conference. The most recent honoree was Blacklock in 2017.

    With Blacklock, Gladney, Moehrig and Wallow, TCU had the most selections on the All-Big 12 First-Team Defense.

    Washington tops all freshmen nationally with five interceptions, the most by a rookie in Gary Patterson's 19 seasons as TCU's head coach. The five picks are also the most by a Horned Frog since Chris Hackett had seven in 2014. Washington, from Shreveport, La., placed third on TCU with 46 tackles.

    Blacklock was also Honorable-Mention Big 12 Defensive Lineman of the Year. He tied for the team lead with 3.5 sacks while tying for second with 9.0 tackles for loss. His 40 stops placed fifth on TCU.

    Gladney had a team-best 14 pass breakups. His 15 passes defended tied Moehrig for second in the Big 12.

    Moehrig was second on TCU with 62 tackles while adding four interceptions and tying for the team lead with two forced fumbles.

    Song was 23-of-24 on field goals and 39-of-39 on PATs. The 23 field goals tied for second-most in a season at TCU, matching Michael Reeder (1995) and Nick Browne (2002). Song was also Honorable-Mention Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Year.

    Wallow's 125 tackles, which include 18 for a loss with 3.5 sacks, lead the Big 12 and tie for seventh nationally. The 125 stops rank fourth in a season under Patterson. Wallow was also Honorable-Mention Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year.

    Reagor led TCU with 43 receptions and 611 yards while tying Wells for the team lead with five touchdown catches. He ranked second nationally with a 20.8 punt return average and is one of only two players in the country with two punt returns for touchdowns this season.

    Wells' five touchdowns came on 17 receptions.

    Anderson rushed for a team-best 823 yards with a 5.5 per carry average and six touchdowns.

    Barber placed second on TCU with 29 receptions and 372 yards. After being slowed by injury in the opening five games, all 29 of his catches came in the final seven contests.

    Bethley started all 12 games and had 2.5 sacks among 4.0 tackles for loss. He is an honorable-mention choice for the second straight year.

    Iwuagwu started each game and was a Team Captain in anchoring the Horned Frogs' offensive line.

    Quarterback Max Duggan was recognized with Honorable-Mention Big 12 Offensive Freshman of the Year honors. He passed for 2,077 yards and 15 touchdowns while placing second on TCU in rushing with 555 yards and six touchdowns.

  2. It was nice to finally not have to worry about the kicker this year, if we're looking for bright spots.
  3. Doesn’t look like a 5-7 team.....Congrats guys
  4. Except for the SMU game. Our coach didn’t trust a kicker enough to try a 51-yarder.

  6. *Seven. Max was in bounds.
  7. Well, that was a distance issue. I was talking about plain old reliability. Not to mention that was earlier in hte year when GP didn't know how much better our kicking was going to be this year. How many missed extra points did we miss over the past couple of years? We didn't have that issue this year.
  8. You know he’s coming back, right?
  9. All pointing to the FACT that we do less with more, unlike the old days where we did more with less.
