Tyler Lockett made the Associated Press All-America team on Tuesday, landing on the second team as an all-purpose player.

The senior Kansas State receiver has earned All-America honors of some kind from various news orginizations in four consecutive seasons with the Wildcats, becoming the first football player in school history to do so.

Lockett was one of the Big 12’s top playmakers this season, catching 93 passes for 1,351 yards and nine touchdowns. With the big year, he passed his father, Kevin, in the K-State record book and holds every significant career receiving record in program history.

He also had 679 yards and two touchdowns as a returner.

The Big 12 honored Lockett as a first-team all-conference receiver and as special teams player of the year for the second consecutive season.
