The TCU football program held its annual team banquet with over 800 people in attendance in the Daniel-Meyer Coliseum.
Jerry Hughes became the first defensive player in Horned Frog history and just the fifth overall to be named a two-time recipient of TCU’s Dan Rogers Most Valuable Player award. He also received the honor in 2008.
Previous two-time recipients were quarterback Jeff Ballard (2005-06), tailback LaDainian Tomlinson (1999-00), offensive lineman W.C. Nix (1985-86) and wide receiver Mike Renfro (1976-77).
Hughes was just the second two-time consensus All-American at TCU. He led the Frogs in tackles for loss (16.5) and sacks (11.5) while placing fifth with a career-high 58 stops.
Hughes won the Ted Hendricks Award and Lott Trophy while being a finalist for the Rotary Lombardi Award and Bronko Nagurski Trophy.
Hughes and linebacker Daryl Washington shared Defensive MVP honors. Washington
