Two Texas A&M players, former Arlington High School standout Luke Joeckel (offensive tackle) and Rowlett product Damontre Moore (defensive lineman), are on the Coaches' All-America Team announced Wednesday by the American Football Coaches Association.
So is Mansfield Summit product Quinn Sharp, place-kicker for Oklahoma State.
Along with Baylor wide receiver Terrance Williams, from Dallas White.
But the quarterback is Clemson's Tajh Boyd, not Heisman Trophy front-runner Johnny Manziel from Texas A&M, nor Kansas State senior Collin Klein, the player Manziel replaced as the Heisman favorite in the Scripps-Howard poll.
Boyd, a junior, leads Manziel and Klein in most of the top passing categories, as per this ESPN.com report, passing along stats provided by Clemson. ESPN.com reporter Andrea Adelson notes, however, that Boyd did not play well in Clemson's two biggest games, against Florida State and South Carolina, both losses.
