Texas Tech senior offensive lineman LaAdrian Waddle was named to the All-Big 12 Conference football team on Tuesday, as selected by the conference’s 10 coaches. Waddle led a pack of six Red Raiders honored as the only first-team selection.

Earning second-team honors are senior receiver Darrin Moore, sophomore tight end Jace Amaro, senior defensive lineman Kerry Hyder and senior defensive backs Cody Davis and D.J. Johnson.

Waddle is the first Tech offensive lineman to be named to the first team since Brandon Carter in 2009.

Earning honorable mention from Tech were junior linebacker Terrance Bullitt, sophomore kicker Ryan Bustin, freshman offensive linemen Le’Raven Clark, senior quarterback Seth Doege, senior defensive back Cornelius Douglas, junior punter Ryan Erxleben, senior defensive lineman Leon Mackey, junior defensive back Trey Porter, junior receiver Eric Ward and sophomore running back Kenny Wiliams.

Clark also received honorable mention as Offensive Lineman of the Year as did Davis for Defensive Player of the Year and Hyder for Defensive Lineman of the Year.

Tech is set to face Minnesota in the Meineke Car Care Bowl on Dec. 28 in Houston.

Waddle and Days Gone By

Waddle might be an All-American and there is no way he slips through the second round. I actually see him late first round.

Darrin Moore--2nd round.

How about Amaro making 2nd team by playing 6 games. This kid will be three-and-out at Tech (He'll graduate in 3 years) and will be a first round pick.

Brandon Carter. Well, I remember the night Carter lined up across from Chief Nakudoomie Suck of Nebraska who was figured to be all world. Suck got one tackle, no sacks, and no hurries. That was during Tech's 4-game winning streak against the formerly steroid infested Cornhuskers presented to us by Coach X that is still intact. Reminds me of the fact that when the NCAA got serious about steroids it was over in Lincoln.

OK. I'm finished.

Great Job!

This kid worked hard for this honor. The Big 12 has some of the best linemen in the nation. To be named 1st team is outstanding. Keep up the good work and show Minnesota what you are about!
