Terence Newman Named to All-Decade Team

MANHATTAN, Kan. - Former Wildcat great Terence Newman was one of four defensive backs to be named to CBS Sports' All-Decade College Football Team.

Newman, who was inducted into the K-State Football Ring of Honor in 2008, lettered from 1999-2002 and played in every K-State game over his four-year career.

The Salina native was a Consensus All-American, Thorpe Award winner and Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year in 2002 and was also a two-time All-Big 12 selection. As a senior, Newman had 54 tackles, five interceptions, 19 passes defended and averaged 29.8 yards a punt return with two scores. He also returned a kickoff for a touchdown in 2002.

Newman was drafted with the fifth overall pick in the first round of the 2003 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys and remains as the second-highest draft pick in school history.

CBS Sports honored four defensive backs on its all-decade team as Oklahoma's Roy Williams and Miami's Ed Reed and Sean Taylor round out the list. The Golden Decade team honored players who played college football from the 2000-2009 seasons.
