Seven Longhorns named to Preseason All-Big 12 team

From TexasSports.com
Senior defensive tackle Rodrique Wright was selected the Big 12 Preseason Defensive Player of the Year and was one of seven Longhorns picked on the Preseason All-Big 12 football team, the league announced Saturday. The team was selected in a poll voted on by the media who cover the Big 12 Conference.

The seven Longhorn players chosen to the team were the most of any league school. Oklahoma with five and Texas Tech with three were the closest contenders.
Wright, who was a second-team All-American (The Sporting News) in 2004, has earned a spot on the Bednarik Award (nation's top defensive player), Lombardi Award (nation's top lineman), Nagurski Trophy (nation's top defensive) and Outland Trophy (nation's top interior lineman) watch lists in 2005. A three-year starter, Wright has posted 181 tackles, 13 sacks, 28 tackles for loss (TFL), 52 quarterback pressures and forced five fumbles in 37 career games (32 starts). He had 36 tackles for the Longhorns last season, 18 solo and three for loss, along with seven QB pressures and a sack.

Junior offensive tackle Justin Blalock, senior linebacker Aaron Harris, senior safety Michael Huff, senior offensive tackle Jonathan Scott, senior tight end David Thomas and junior quarterback Vince Young joined Wright on the all-conference squad.

Wow, Texas is fucking awesome!
Funny how all the sarcastic or negative comments on this blog come from Anonymous folks...
