WVU Places One On All-Big 12 Preseason Football Team


West Virginia offensive lineman Colton McKivitz is the Mountaineers’ lone selection to the 2019 All-Big 12 preseason football team as voted on by the media. The Jacobsburg, Ohio native is a three-year starter at tackle for the Mountaineers, playing in 38 games and starting 35. His 35 starts run consecutively and lead all returning WVU players in 2019. He is a two-time All-Big 12 Honorable Mention selection and a three-time Academic All-Big 12 Second-Team selection. He saw action on 950 plays in 2018, including 870 on offense and helped pave the way for the offense to average 512.3. yards of total offense per game, ranking No. 2 in the Big 12 and No. 10 nationally. In 2017, he lead the team with 986 plays.

McKivitz prevented a WVU shutout on the 29-man squad, which included 15 offensive and 14 defensive players. The Mountaineers and Kansas State each had one player selected. Oklahoma lead the league with five picks, followed by Iowa State, Texas, Oklahoma State and TCU (four each), and Baylor, Texas Tech and Kansas (two each).

Offensive players selected included one quarterback, three running backs, three wide receivers, one tight end (listed as a fourth WR on the league’s social media reveal), five offensive linemen, one placekicker and one kick returner. Defensively, five linemen, three linebackers, five defensive backs and one punter were selected.

The all-conference team includes 10 seniors, 12 juniors and seven sophomores.

Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger was selected as the preseason offensive player of the year, while Oklahoma linebacker Kenneth Murray earned the defensive selection.  Teammate Jalen Hurts, who will run the Sooner offense, was tabbed as the Newcomer of the Year.
