Doctson Receives National Honor

Sept. 27, 2015

NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- The Walter Camp Football Foundation has announced TCU wide receiver Josh Doctson as its National Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in Saturday's 55-52 win at Texas Tech.

Doctson had 18 receptions for 267 yards and three touchdowns. The 18 catches were the most in a game by an FBS player this season while tying TCU and Big 12 single-game records. Doctson is one of just four players since the start of the 2013 season to have 18 receptions in a game.

The 267 yards receiving broke the TCU single-game mark of 226, set by Jimmy Young against Wyoming in 2008.

Doctson's three touchdown catches gave him 21 in his career, ranking second on the Horned Frogs’ all-time list behind Josh Boyce (22, 2010-12).

Doctson became the first Horned Frog with at least 10 receptions in a game since Trevone Boykin had 11 catches against West Virginia in 2013.

Boykin was the Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week after last season’s 82-27 win over Texas Tech.
