Doctson a Consensus First-Team All-American

Dec. 16, 2015

WACO, Texas -- The American Football Coaches Association has selected TCU wide receiver Josh Doctson to its All-America team, making him a 2015 consensus first-team All-American.

Doctson earned the consensus honor by being a first-team selection on the five major All-America teams recognized by the NCAA: Walter Camp, Associated Press, Football Writers Association of America, Sporting News and AFCA.

Doctson gives TCU a consensus All-American for the second straight season and fifth time in eight years (Jerry Hughes, 2008-09; Tejay Johnson, 2010; Paul Dawson, 2014).

Doctson, who will receive his TCU degree Saturday, leads the nation with 132.7 receiving yards per game. He is the only player in the country to rank in the top six 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.
