Dave Campbell's Texas Football Magazine has recently named Kelvin Beachum, Jr. and Aldrick Robinson as part of the 2010 All-Texas College First-Team Offense in its 51st annual edition.
Teammates Taylor Thompson and Josh Leribeus also were honored, with Thompson being named to second-team defense, and Leribeus to second-team offense.
Beachum, a junior offensive lineman from Mexia, Texas, has started in all 24 career games for the Mustangs. Last season, Beachum was a second-team All-Conference USA selection and one of 12 student athletes to receive the fall C-USA spirit of service award.
During his sophomore year, Beachum blocked for an SMU offense that passed for a school-record 3,666 yards. This is the second time Beachum has been named to Dave Campbell's Texas Football's All-Texas Team. In high school, he also was a Dave Campbell's Texas Football "player to watch."
Robinson, a senior wide receiver from Waxahachie, Texas, caught nine passes for a season-high 176 yards in SMU's Hawaii Bowl win. He tied the record for longest pass play in school history in 2009 bringing in a 96-yard touchdown pass against East Carolina.
Robinson finished the 2009 season with 47 catches for 800 yards and five touchdowns. He also recently was named to ESPN.com's non-automatic qualifiers (non-AQ) all-bowl team. Like Beachum, Robinson was mentioned as Dave Campbell's Texas Football "player to watch" during his high school career.
Dave Campbell's Texas Football Magazine gave the SMU Mustangs an honorable mention in the 2010 FSN Preseason Top 25, along with 12 other teams that received votes.
The 2010 Mustang football season kicks off against Texas Tech in Lubbock on Sept. 5. The game will be televised on ESPN.
