“There are always so many deserving talents but it’s great to see big names we know like Will Anderson, Jack Campbell and Olusegun Oluwatimi have big-time seasons once again but it’s also incredible to see our team reflect the breakout season TCU enjoyed this year,” said FWAA President David Ubben of The Athletic. “It’s always difficult to narrow down the team but it’s also a sign of strength in the sport when there are so many deserving candidates at so many positions. College football’s on-field product is in great shape.”
