Oklahoma State seniors James Washington and Mason Rudolph were both named to the AP Midseason All-America team released on Tuesday. Washington earned first team honors, and his signal-calling teammate was named to the second unit.
Washington is second in the nation in yards receiving this season with 882 yards, doing so on 25 fewer receptions than receiving leader Michael Gallup out of Colorado State.

Similarly, Rudolph is second in the nation in yards passing with 2,368 despite tossing 137 fewer attempts than stats leader Tyler Rogers of New Mexico State. In fact, Rudolph has fewer pass attempts than 12 of the nation’s leaders in yards passing. Pretty good, huh?
