TCU's outstanding wide receiver, Josh Doctson, has been named a first team USA Today All-American. He's the only TCU player to be named to either the first or second teams.

Despite missing the majority of the past four games with a wrist injury, Doctson has set all kinds of receiving records for the Frogs, hauling in 79 receptions for 1,327 yards and 14 touchdowns this season. For his TCU career, Doctson has 180 receptions for 2,785 yards and 29 touchdowns. Combined with his season at Wyoming, Doctson's collegiate totals are 215 receptions for 3,187 yards and 32 touchdowns.

Doctson holds the TCU single-season and career records for receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns. His 2015 season was highlighted by a string of six consecutive 100+ yard, multi-touchdown performances, tied for the longest such streak in college football history with former Texas Tech, and current Oakland Raider receiver Michael Crabtree.

His biggest performance came against the Red Raiders, where he pulled down 18 catches for 267 yards and three touchdowns. He had two other double-digit reception games on the season, against Iowa State and West Virginia.

Congratulations to Josh on what's likely the first of several All-American selections for him this year!
