Texas Tech wide receiver Keke Coutee, linebacker Dakota Allen and defensive backs Jah’Shawn Johnson and Justus Parker were named second-team all-Big 12 on the honor team chosen by the conference’s coaches and released Thursday.
Selections were made by the conference’s 10 head coaches, who are not allowed to vote for their own players.
The Red Raiders, who finished the regular season 6-6, were shut out of first-team honors.
Parker, in addition to his second-team recognition, received honorable mention for defensive newcomer of the year. The sophomore from La Vernia joined the Red Raiders as a walk-on transfer from Division III Texas Lutheran. He has four interceptions, four pass breakups, four fumbles caused and a fumble-return touchdown.
Coutee has team highs of 82 pass receptions for 1,242 yards and nine touchdowns. Among the other second-team defense honorees, Allen and Johnson are Tech’s two leading tacklers with 93 and 89 stops, respectively.
Allen also has six tackles for loss, including two sacks, two interceptions, four pass breakups and a fumble recovery. Johnson also has five pass breakups and three tackles for loss.
A total of 16 Tech players received honorable mention. The honorable mentions on offense were linemen Madison Akamnonu, Travis Bruffy and Paul Stawarz, quarterback Nic Shimonek, running back Justin Stockton and wide receiver Dylan Cantrell.
The honorable mentions on defense were linemen Kolin Hill, Eli Howard, Mych Thomas and Broderick Washington, linebacker Jordyn Brooks and safety Vaughnte Dorsey. Red Raiders receiving honorable mention for special teams were Cameron Batson and Coutee as return men and punter Dominic Panazzolo.
The Associated Press All-Big 12 team, selected by writers who regularly cover the conference, will be released next week.
