LUBBOCK, Texas – Offensive lineman Le'Raven Clark has been named to the Football Writer's Association Freshman All-America team and becomes the 11th Tech player to take home this first-year honor.

Clark, a redshirt freshman from Rockdale, graded out as Tech's top offensive lineman during the 2012 season, according to former offensive line coach Chris Thomsen. Clark helped anchor a line that allowed just 19 sacks over 13 games, a figure that finished as the fifth best in the Big 12 Conference.

Texas Tech has now had freshman All-Americans in back-to-back seasons as Jarvis Philips took home similar honors in 2011.

Ohio State's first-year coach Urban Meter claimed the first-year coaching honors after his Buckeyes completed a perfect 12-0 regular season.

The team and coach are selected by an 11-person panel of nationally-prominent writers led by Mike Griffith of the MLive Media Group. Both true freshmen (15 players) and redshirt freshmen (15 players) were considered for the team and are so noted.
