The Big 12 announced it's Academic All-Big 12 teams, and six Horned Frogs made the various lists.

From the desk of Mark Cohen:

Six TCU football players have received Academic All-Big 12 recognition.

Tight end Bryson Burtnett (business), safety Geoff Hooker (mechanical engineering), tight end Buck Jones (mechanical engineering), place-kicker Jaden Oberkrom (psychology) and offensive tackle Joseph Noteboom (computer information technology) are first-team honorees.

Center Joey Hunt (business) is on the second team.

It's always cool to hear about this kind of stuff, especially when we're constantly inundated with stories about arrests, drug use, school shootings and a whole host of negativity. So, props to the Frogs, as well as all the other students across the conference and country that take their academics seriously. Keep up the good work.
