Cain And Pachall Honored By Dave Campbell's Texas Football
June 25, 2012
FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU quarterback Casey Pachall and linebacker Kenny Cain highlight six Horned Frogs selected to Dave Campbell's Texas Football All-Texas College Team.
Pachall has been named the State's Player of the Year and Best Quarterback, while Cain is tabbed the State's Best Linebacker.
TCU is represented on the first-team All-Texas College Team by Pachall, Cain, wide receiver Josh Boyce, offensive guard Blaize Foltz and defensive end Stansly Maponga. Tailback Waymon James is a second-team pick.
Pachall set TCU single-season records for completions (228), completion percentage (66.5) and passing yards (2,921), while his 25 touchdown passes placed second behind only Andy Dalton (27, 2010). Pachall ranked 12th nationally, and third among non-juniors and seniors, in passing efficiency with a 157.98 rating. He was the Walter Camp National Player of the Week after career-high totals of 473 yards passing (24-of-37) and five touchdowns in a 36-35 win at No. 5 Boise State. The 473 yards passing were the most by a TCU quarterback in the 11-season tenure of head coach Gary Patterson and the second-best total in school history. The five touchdown passes tied a TCU single-game record shared by three others.
Cain became the fourth different linebacker in the last four years to lead TCU in tackles. Despite missing two games due to injury, Cain totaled a team-best 72 stops. He recorded three tackles for loss, including a sack, while tying for third on the Horned Frogs with four pass breakups. The Metairie, La., native added an interception and fumble recovery.
