The Texas Tech Red Raiders college football team represents Texas Tech University in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Football Bowl Subdivision as a member of the Big 12 Conference's South Division. Texas Tech players and coaches of exceptional ability have received various accolades.

All-AmericansEdit

Each year, numerous publications and organizations release lists of All-America teams, hypothetical rosters of players considered the best in the nation at their respective positions.[1] Some selecting organizations choose more than one roster of All-Americans, in which case they use the terms "first team", "second team", and "third team" as appropriate.[2] College Sports Information Directors of America awards similar All-American honors with a focus on academic achievements.[3]

The National Collegiate Athletic Association, a college sports governing body, uses officially recognized All-America selectors to determine the "consensus" selections. These are based on a point system in which a player is awarded three points for every selector that names him to the first team, two points for the second team, and one point for the third team. The individual who receives the most points at his position is called a consensus All-American.[4] Over time, the sources used to determine the consensus selections have changed, and since 2002, the NCAA has used five selectors, the Associated Press (AP), American Football Coaches Association (AFCA), Football Writers Association of America (FWAA), The Sporting News (TSN), and the Walter Camp Football Foundation (WCFF), to determine consensus All-Americans.[5]

In 1935, end Herschel Ramsey was the first Texas Tech player to be named an All-American.[6] Twenty-five years later in 1960, linebacker E. J. Holub became Texas Tech's first consensus All-American. Texas Tech players have earned consensus All-America honors 12 times: E. J. Holub in 1960, Donny Anderson in 1965, Dan Irons in 1977, Gabriel Rivera in 1982, Mark Bounds in 1991, Zach Thomas in 1995, Byron Hanspard in 1996, Montae Reagor in 1998, Michael Crabtree in 2007 and 2008, Brandon Carter in 2008, and Jace Amaro in 2013.[7]
