Texas Top 5 Male Longhorn Athletes of the Year

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 09:47 PM CDT
We start with a deserving duo at Number 5, golfer Dylan Frittelli and pitcher Cory Knebel.

Frittlelli fever flowed across the 40 Acres after he sank a 30 foot putt to give the Horns a 3-2 win over Alabama in the national title match. The senior All-American totaled 11 top 10 finishes and won the Byron Nelson Award.

Meanwhile Knebel pulled double duty for the Horns as a starter and reliever, winning four games and saving nine, all the while holding a team low 2.08 ERA.  Knebel collected the only complete game of the season and the Big 12 named him to its first team.

J’Covan Brown is Number 4.  Brown led the Longhorns and Big 12 in scoring with 20 points per game and ranked second on the team with 130 assists and 41 steals. Named to the all Big 12 first team, Brown reached double figures in all but two games and the junior leaves Texas 18th on the all time scoring list.

Fozzy Whittaker wins at Number 3 despite missing the last four games of the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and medial collateral ligament (MCL). Whittaker left an indelible mark in his final season.  An All Big 12 first team selection, Whittaker led the Longhorns with nine touchdowns and 955 all-purpose yards. He had 100 yard kickoff returns in back to back weeks and the team named him its most valuable player.

The world's top ranked amateur golfer is Number 2. Freshman golfer Jordan Spieth helped lead the UT golf team to the national title by posting three first place finishes - including a dramatic chip at the Morris Williams.  Spieth was named Big 12 player of the year, Big 12 freshman of the year.  He was a Ben Hogan finalist and first team All-American.

At Number 1…Marquise Magic.  Marquise Goodwin won his second national championship in the long jump with a leap of 27 feet, becoming the 8th Longhorn to win multiple national titles.  He also qualified for nationals in the 100 meters.  Goodwin also had 641 total yards and two touchdowns as a receiver.  There’s little doubt that Marquise Goodwin deserves the honor as our male Athlete of the Year.
