James Washington a unanimous All-Big 12 Preseason Team selection

West Virginia players scarce on All-Big 12 preseason team

Three other Cowboys joined Washington on the preseason selection list; sophomore running back Justice Hill, lineman Zach Crabtree and defensive back Tre Flowers.

Of course, this team is selected by the media, most of whom reside in Texas, OKC and Kansas City. The 6-foot-4, 246-pound Houston native is both the first KU player named a preseason individual award victor during the school's time in the Big 12 and the first Jayhawk to be a unanimous selection for the preseason All-Big 12 team.

OU and OSU are both well represented on the All-Big 12 Football Team.

The Mountaineers, on the other hand, haven't been picked higher than sixth in the preseason poll since their inaugural season in the conference in 2012.

Two small steps to get ahead on Amazon Prime Day
Fashionistas can also look forward to heavily-discounted designer items from the likes of Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger and Gant. July 11 is to be the Prime Day declared by the Amazon , but it's already evident the savings will kick off earlier this year.

Defensive Player of the Year: Dorance Armstrong, DL, Kansas. Smith started all 13 games in the 2016 season and tied for the fifth-most sacks in a year in Baylor history. Showing versatility, Armstrong wreaked havoc in the backfield on a weekly basis by disrupting 20.0 plays before the opponent could reach the line-of-scrimmage in 2016.

Oklahoma has been dominant in the Big 12, winning 10 conference championships. That makes it hard for an outlier like West Virginia to grab notoriety. He also forced three fumbles and recovered two fumbles. In the season finale against in-state rival K-State, Armstrong provided six stops - 3.0 of which were for negative yards.

Underdog programs adore playing up the disrespect narrative this time of year, and to that end, the All-Big 12 preseason team fed West Virginia a heap of talking points.

Armstrong and four Kansas State players were named to the Preseason All-Big 12 football team in voting.
