Phillip Gaines, Nate Richards and Charles Ross led a group of seven Rice football players who were honored by Dave Campbell's Texas Football on the publication's All Texas College team. The team was revealed in DCTF's 2014 winter edition.
Gaines earned first-team honors for the second consecutive year, becoming the Owls first repeat selection since Jarett Dillard was a three-time choice from 2006-08. He led the team with four interceptions this year while combining with Callahan to shut down many of the conference's top receiving threats. He played in the East-West Shrine game and was invited to the NFL Combine in February.
Richards anchored the Owls offensive line since joining the squad from Trinity Valley Community College. He made 27 consecutive starts while leading a line that has allowed Rice to lead the conference and rank 16th in the nation in rushing (240.2 per game).
Ross finished his career as the Owls' second-leading career rusher. His 1,280 yards in 2013 rank fourth in school history and his conference-best 15 rushing touchdowns rank second at Rice.
Boswell continued his ascent up the Rice and C-USA career kicking lists. He fell one point shy of matching Jarett Dillard'sschool scoring record of 360 points. He set a Rice career record with 65 field goals, which matched the third most in C-USA history. He played in the 2014 Senior Bowl.
Covington opened the year with sacks in the first two games and continued to dominate along the front line even after suffering a thumb injury at North Texas that limited his ability to grasp with his right hand. He has been credited with a career-high 59 tackles with 11.5 tackles for loss (four sacks).

Kutzler stepped into a starter's role for the first time in his career after returning All C-USA linebacker Cameron Nwosu was slowed in the rehab of an injured knee and responded by leading the team with 96 tackles.
Taylor led the Owls with 55 catches for a career-best 848 yards and eight touchdowns (also a career high). He broke the Rice Stadium record for receiving yardage when he burned UTEP for 185 yards on four catches and set a C-USA Championship Game record with a 75-yard touchdown reception against Marshall.
