Sooners Dominate Preseason All-Big 12 Team

NORMAN, Okla. -- The media Preseason All-Big 12 Football Team was released Tuesday afternoon, and for the third consecutive year, the Sooners lead the list.

They stole the show with nine selections.

Linebacker Travis Lewis led the way as the Preseason Defensive Player of the Year.

He was one of five Sooners to make the list on the defensive side of the ball.

Defensive linemen Frank Alexander and Ronnell Lewis each made the list for the first time, while field cornerback Demontre Hurst did so as well, and Ryan Broyles was selected as punt returner.

Offensively, Broyles, a First Team All-Big 12 selection at wide receiver a year ago, joined quarterback Landry Jones, running back Roy Finch and center Ben Habern as the four members on the preseason list.

The Preseason Big 12 poll will be released Wednesday, followed by the annual Big 12 Media Days in Dallas July 25-26.
