TCU football arrives in Phoenix for the Cheez-It Bowl
TCU football honored its 2018 senior class on Thursday night, and also handed out last season’s team award winners.
The senior class closed their careers by going 35-18 overall and 22-14 in Big 12 games, winning the 2016 and 2017 Valero Alamo Bowl and last year’s Cheez-It Bowl.
Sophomore wide receiver Jalen Reagor was named the team’s most valuable player, in voting by his teammates. He’s the first wide receiver to win the award since Cory Rodgers in 2004.
Reagor was also named the offensive MVP following a season in which he topped the 1,000-yard receiving mark. Reagor finished the year with a team-leading 72 receptions for 1,061 yards. More than 60 percent of his receptions (44 of 72) went for a first down or a touchdown.
Senior defensive end L.J. Collier earned defensive MVP honors, and true freshman Trevon Moehrig was the special teams MVP.
Collier was second on the team with six sacks and 11.5 tackles for loss. He also tied for third on the team with four pass breakups, the most by a D-lineman.
Moehrig finished second on the team with six special teams tackles.
