Corsicana’s Chris Edling, a freshman tight end at New Mexico, earned a Mountain West Academic All-Conference award for the 2012 fall semester, the conference announced Thursday.
Edling was one of 14 Lobos to earn academic all-conference honors. It’s the school’s second most honorees in the past 11 years and double the number the team had in 2011.
Edling, who played on the Tigers’ 2011 state semifinal team, hasn’t declared a major yet at New Mexico.
Edling is a potential starter at tight end and H-back in 2013 for the Lobos.
Daniels competes for UTSA: Corsicana’s Alexus Daniels, a freshman jumper for UT-San Antonio, recently competed in the Armory Collegiate Invitational in New York City.
Daniels competed in the long jump and triple jump.
