Texas Longhorns C Zach Shackelford Nabs FWAA Freshman All-American Honors

True freshman center Zach Shackelford is the sole Longhorn named to FWAA's 2016 Freshman All-America team.

Texas Longhorns offensive lineman Zach Shackelford was named a Football Writers Association of America Freshman All-American, the organization announced Monday afternoon.

The sole Longhorn to earn All-American honors, Shackelford joins Oklahoma State Cowboys RB Justice Hill as the only two Big 12 football players to secure spots on FWAA's 2016 Freshman All-America team.

Shackelford started nine games at center for Texas during his true freshman season, and helped open up the run game for 2016 Doak Walker Award winner D'Onta Foreman
