Charles has made all-conference all three years

Posted Nov 27, 2007


The Big 12 conference announced the all-conference teams Tuesday and Jamaal Charles, Marcus Griffin and Tony Hills are on the first team, while Derek Lokey and Frank Okam were selected to the second team.

Junior RB Jamaal Charles, senior S Marcus Griffin and senior OT Tony Hills earned first-team honors, while senior DTs Derek Lokey and Frank Okam were named to the second team.

Charles has been selected to either the first or second team all three years of his career after being named to the second team in each of the last two seasons. Charles was also named Big 12 offensive Freshman of the Year in 2005. Hills and Okam both earned honorable mentionable honors last season.

No Longhorn earned an individual award, but it is notable that although only two of the honorees are from Universities in the state of Texas, six of the ten players honored do come from Texas high schools.
