According to the Tyler Morning Telegraph, Josh Doctson has been named the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose National Player of the Week for his seven reception 225-yard and two touchdown performance in TCU's 42-9 victory over Oklahoma State.

Doctson, a junior from Mansfield, was one yard shy of tying TCU's single-game receiving yards record. He had touchdown receptions of 77-and 84-yards, both coming in the first quarter, as TCU jumped out to an early 21-3 lead and never looked back.

For the season, Doctson has 31 receptions for 497 yards and five touchdowns, leading the team in all three categories.

Doctson is the second TCU player to receive the national honor this season, as Trevone Boykin was recognized for his performance in TCU's 56-0 win over SMU earlier this year.

Boykin accounted for six total touchdowns and just shy of 400 total yards in the win.

Here's the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award's Mission Statement, pulled from their website:

To recognize the nation’s college offensive player of the year who meets the awards criteria and to encourage student-athletes to succeed on and off the field while having the drive and the tenacity to persist and overcome adversity and injury in the pursuit of reaching their goals. The award honors the legacy of Texas legend Earl Campbell and recognizes his home community of Tyler, Texas.
