More accolades for TCU players, Patterson

By Jeff Caplan

The Sporting News, in a nod to TCU's stellar defense, selected three TCU Horned Frogs defenders to its 2009 All-American teams.

Defensive end Jerry Hughes, with 11.5 sacks, made the first team. Linebacker Daryl Washington was selected to the second team and cornerback Rafael Priest is on the third team. TCU's defense is ranked No. 1 in the nation.

Meanwhile, coach Gary Patterson picked up another national coach of the year award, winning the George Munger award. Patterson has the No. 3 Frogs (AP top 25, No. 4 in BCS) headed to the Fiesta Bowl Jan. 4 to take on No. 6 Boise State.
