Defensive tackle Christian Covington, who was a key contributor to a productive season by the entire Rice defensive line was one of four Owls who were named to the Conference USA All-Freshman Football team as selected by the league's head coaches.
Covington started 10 of 12 games at defensive tackle and led the front wall with 17 hurries in addition to tying for third with seven tackles for loss and finishing fourth with four sacks. He also forced a fumble and broke up a pass. The Owls finished the regular season with 26 sacks, their highest total since 2006.
Turner burst upon the scene at the start of the conference season, rushing for 105 yards in the second half vs. Tulsa. He also scored a pair of fourth quarter touchdowns at Tulane to provide the Owls with their winning margin.
Williams took command of the starting spot at tackle last spring and maintained his grip through fall camp and started 11 of 12 games, missing one because of injury. Rice increased it's rushing total by nearly 50 yards a game and is 2nd nationally in time of possession thanks to improved line play. He has graded from 84-93% in his first 11 games.
Parks took over the Owls punt return duties over in the last half of the season and returned 13 for 42 yards, including a long return of 18 yards vs. Tulane.
The Owls are beginning preparations for their Armed Forces Bowl date with Air Force, which will be played on December 29 at Amon G.Carter Stadium in Fort Worth and broadcast nationally by ESPN.
