Newhouse Heads To Green Bay
April 24, 2010
FORT WORTH, Texas -- Former TCU offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse was selected by the Green Bay Packers with the final pick in the fifth round of the 2010 National Football League draft.
TCU has had eight players drafted the last two seasons and 24 total in the nine-year tenure of head coach Gary Patterson.
Newhouse is the fifth TCU offensive lineman drafted in the last six years.
A three-time All-Mountain West Conference selection, Newhouse was named to two All-America teams as a senior. He was also tabbed the Best Offensive Lineman in the State by Dave Campbell's Texas Football.
Newhouse started all but one game over the last three seasons.
A native of Dallas, Newhouse was instrumental in TCU ranking in the top-10 nationally in scoring offense (38.3 points per game), total offense (456.7 yards per game) and rushing offense (239.5 yards per game) last season. The Horned Frogs were sixth nationally in allowing only 12 sacks (0.9 per game).
TCU set single-season school records in 2009 for points scored (498) and total offense (5,937 yards).
