Keke Coutee’s outstanding season continues to earn him recognition.
The Texas Tech receiver is one of 10 semifinalists for the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award, which recognizes the best offensive player who was born in Texas, went to high school in Texas or attends a Texas University. In addition to being a Red Raider, Coutee went to Lufkin High School in Lufkin, Texas.

Coutee’s 1,074 receiving yards rank seventh in the country, while his 73 receptions are the ninth-most. Both marks are the second-best totals in the Big 12.
Coutee, who was also a semifinalist for the Biletnikoff Award, is one of four receivers up for the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award. The junior is one of 12 receivers in the country with more than 1,000 receiving yards.
Coutee and the Red Raiders conclude the regular season Saturday against Texas. Texas Tech must win the game to become bowl eligible.
