Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields and running back JK Dobbins highlight the 2019 All-Big Ten First-Team offense, which was released Wednesday by the Big Ten Network.
Fields leads the Big Ten with 37 passing touchdowns and a passer rating of 192.07. Dobbins is second in the Big Ten in rushing, averaging 138.1 yards rushing per game. He has rushed for 1,657 yards and 19 touchdowns. Dobbins joins first-teamer Jonathan Taylor, who has rushed for 1,761 yards this year and 20 touchdowns for Wisconsin.
Taylor was the only unanimous selection on any of the All-Big Ten teams.
Dobbins and Fields were named to the first team by both the coaches and the media.
Also making the coaches first team was graduate senior left guard Jonah Jackson, who transferred to Ohio State from Rutgers back in the spring.
The media went with a different Buckeye guard for their first team, choosing redshirt sophomore right guard Wyatt Davis.
The rest of Ohio State’s starting offensive line made at least one Second-Team. Redshirt sophomore center Josh Myers was named Second-Team All-B1G by the media, but Third-Team by the coaches. Fifth-year senior right tackle Branden Bowen was named Second-Team by the coaches, but Third-Team by the media.
Junior left tackle Thayer Munford was named Second-Team All-Big Ten by both the coaches and media.
Redshirt freshman running back Master Teague made Third-Team by both the coaches and media. Sophomore receiver Chris Olave was a Third-Team selection by both parties as well.
Teague has rushed for 780 yards and four touchdowns this season. He is first in the Big Ten and sixth in the nation with 359 yards rushing in the fourth quarter this season.
Olave, who has caught 41 passes for 705 yards this season, is tied for the Big Ten lead with 11 touchdown receptions.
Fourth-year junior tight end Luke Farrell made Third-Team All-B1G by the coaches. He was an honorable mention selection by the media.
Fifth-year senior receiver KJ Hill was named Honorable Mention by both the media and coaches.
On Tuesday, the 2019 All-Big Ten Defensive selections were released.
Its obvious most of these selections are numbers driven. That’s cool – but you can’t tell me that tOSU receiving corps is not one of the best in country. The good news is that due to the rotation (or in spite of) the good guys continue to recruit that position at a high level and they develop the talent they have. So, kudos to the two Minnie wide outs, but I’ll take Chris, KJ, Ben, et al any day. Go bucks!
I have been a tOHIO Buckeyes loyal freak , rose colored glass freak @ that.
first I have ever send the whole OL on 1, 2, 3 teams… my my my!
Chris Olave a 3rd teamer, and yet he’s one of the most dangerous receivers in the Country on the Nations best team………rotflmao. KJ Hill just an honorable mention? What hacks are voting?
I was thinking the same thing.
