IRVING – Sophomore Mason Fine (Cherokee) was named first team all-Conference USA quarterback, the league office announced Tuesday.
Fine, who was on C-USA’s all-freshman team a year ago, is the first North Texas quarterback to be named first-team all-conference since Scott Hall in 2003 and the first sophomore to be named first-team QB since Scott Davis in 1988.
Although North Texas won the C-USA West Division championship, Fine was the Mean Green’s only first-team selection as determined by the league’s 14 head coaches.
Fine, who leads C-USA’s second-ranked offense, has completed 64.3 percent of his passes, for single-season school records of 3,749 yards and 28 touchdowns. Seventeen of his 28 touchdowns were for 20 yards or more and 10 were for 40 yards or more. He leads C-USA in touchdown passes (12th nationally) and passing efficiency (147.77) and is second in passing yardage (ninth nationally), passing yardage per game (288.4, 17th nationally).
