Ogbah, Hill Named To All-Big 12 Team


Tyreek Hill is having a good week. Two days after his epic 92-yard punt return for a touchdown in the Bedlam game, it was announced that he and defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah received first team All-Big 12 honors from the Associated Press.

Hill and Ogbah were the only two Oklahoma State players named to the team.

Hill, named to the “all-purpose” position, electrified Cowboy fans with his world class speed and play making ability. He racked up 1,811 total yards and was national runner-up with 996 combined return yards.

From the moment he stepped on the field and lit up defending national champion Florida State for 278 all-purpose yards to the closing minute of the Bedlam victory, Hill has wowed with big play after big play. Hill scored in just about every way a football player can score in 2014.

Ogbah has been a menace to Big 12 quarterbacks while amassing 11 sacks and 17 tackles for loss. He burst on the the scene with two sacks of Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Jameis Winston in the season opener against Florida State.

Against Kansas alone Ogbah recorded 5.5 tackles for loss, a single game school record. Ogbah’s 11 sacks are the sixth best total in school history and it marks the first time a player has recorded double-digit sacks in the Mike Gundy era.

Baylor led the way with nine players named to the AP All-Big 12 team. TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin was named the Offensive Player of the Year and his teammate LB Paul Dawson was named Defensive Player of the Year.
