HOUSTON, Texas (Nov. 28) - One week removed from an All-America selection by The Football News, University of Houston senior linebacker Wayne Rogers (Waco, Texas) added another national honor to his mantel Nov. 28, as College Football News.com selected him as a Third Team, All-American.

Rogers was the Cougars defensive leader this year, racking up Conference USA-leading 134 tackles, including 87 solo stops. Rogers-who was twice named C-USA Defensive Player of the Week in games versus Memphis and Southern Miss in successive weeks-set a Houston single-season record with 26 tackles for loss. He also racked up 10 sacks, four passes broken up and one interception.

The former University High School star in Waco, Rogers finished his career with 330 tackles, 57 tackles for loss and 19 sacks, placing him in the UH Top 10 in all three categories. His 57 TFLs ranks him second to only T.J. Turner (1982-85) and his 66 tackles for loss.

Rogers is one of only two Conference USA players to make either first, second or third team, joining Cincinnati kicker Jonathan Ruffin, who made first team. As for players from the state of Texas, Rogers is one of nine.

The 2000 season does not end for Rogers until mid January, when he takes part in the annual East-West Shrine Classic in Palo Alto, Calif. Rogers becomes the first Cougar to win multiple All-America honors since Ben Fricke, who was honored by the Football Writers Association of America, Associated Press, The Sports Network and The Football News in 1997.
