Doctson and Oberkrom are FWAA All-Americans


Dec. 14, 2015

DALLAS -- The Football Writers Association of America has named TCU wide receiver Josh Doctson a first-team All-American with place-kicker Jaden Oberkrom a second-team pick.

Doctson, a Biletnikoff Award and Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award finalist, has now been named a first-team selection on five All-America teams. He also received honors from Walter Camp, Associated Press, 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.

Oberkrom, a Lou Groza Award semifinalist, is 17-of-21 on field goals this season. His 75 career field goals are a TCU record and have tied the Big 12 mark held by Oklahoma's Michael Hunnicutt (2011-14).

Oberkrom is 9-of-10 on attempts of at least 40 yards this season, including 3-of-3 from beyond 50. He tied a TCU record with a 57-yard field goal against West Virginia. Oberkrom ranks second in Big 12 history with a 73.2 percentage (30-of-41) on attempts of at least 40 yards.

A senior from Arlington, Texas, Oberkrom has four of the six longest field goals in TCU history. He is the Horned Frogs' career leader in points scored with 436.
