Doctson Named AP First-Team All-American


Dec. 13, 2015

NEW YORK -- TCU wide receiver Josh Doctson has been named a first-team All-American by the Associated Press.

Doctson, a Biletnikoff Award and Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award finalist, has now been named to four All-America teams. He was also a first-team selection by Walter Camp, USA Today and SI.com.

Doctson leads the nation with 132.7 receiving yards per game. He is the only player in the country to rank in the top 6 in receiving yards per game, receptions per game (7.9) and touchdown catches (14). His 79 receptions, 1,327 yards receiving and 14 touchdowns are TCU single-season records. The TD catches are tied for fourth nationally, while he is sixth in receptions per game.

Despite missing two games and parts of two others due to injury, Doctson still led all Big 12 receivers with 61 catches and 1,001 yards receiving in conference play. His 11 touchdown catches were one shy of the lead.

Doctson has joined two-time Biletnikoff Award winner Michael Crabtree from Texas Tech as the only players in the last 20 years to have six straight games with at least 100 yards receiving and multiple touchdown catches.

Eleven of Doctson's 14 touchdown receptions have come with the score in single digits. He is tied for the national lead with 56 catches of at least 10 yards.

Doctson received Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week honors after his 18 receptions for 267 yards and three touchdowns in TCU's 55-52 win at Texas Tech.

Doctson is one of just eight players in Big 12 history to have multiple seasons of at least 1,000 yards receiving and 10 touchdown catches.
