2012 Preview: Foltz Anchors Offensive Line
Aug. 19, 2012
FORT WORTH, Texas -- GoFrogs.com continues its preview of the 2012 TCU football team with a look at the offensive line.
Foltz, a first-team all-conference selection last season, appears on watch lists for the Rotary Lombardi Award and Outland Trophy. With a bench press of 580 pounds and a squat of 800, Foltz's efforts in the weight room earned him a spot as one of 10 players on CBSSports.com's "Freak List" for superior workout habits and displays of athleticism.
Yahoo! Sports placed Foltz on its All-Bowl Team after his performance in last year's Poinsettia Bowl victory over Louisiana Tech.
Fry had a solid season in his first year as a starter after replacing 2010 Rimington Trophy winner Jake Kirkpatrick. Fry appears on this year's Rimington Trophy Watch List.
Tayo Fabuluje (6-7, 315, So.) entered fall camp as a projected starter at one of the tackle positions. A Euless, Texas, native, Fabuluje sat out the 2011 campaign after transferring from BYU.
Eric Tausch (6-3, 300, Jr.) started one game at center last season and is arguably the most versatile member of the offensive line. He can be utilized in multiple positions.
Michael Thompson (6-5, 352, So.) is a promising young lineman who, like Tausch, can play in a variety of spots. Thompson saw action at center and offensive tackle in six games last season before being sidelined by injury.
