More Love for Suh, Henery
No Blackshirt has won the award since Grant Wistrom in 1996 and 1997.
Suh is also on the Big 12's preseason first team.
He's joined there by kicker Alex Henery. Henery made 18-21 field goals last year, including a 57-yarder - The Kick Heard Round Nebraska - to help beat Colorado 40-31. Henery has a shot to be NU's punter in 2009, as well.
Sam Bradford beat out Colt McCoy for Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year. Baylor defensive tackle Phil Taylor - featured in our BU breakdown - won Newcomer of the Year.
On the entire first-team itself, there are only four players from the entire Big 12 North: Henery, Suh, Kansas receiver Dez Briscoe and KU defensive back Darrell Stuckey. Texas, surprisingly, only has four players. Oklahoma has twice as many, with eight. Oklahoma State boasts five.
