Selections for the award are made by the league's 10 head coaches, who are not permitted to vote for their own players. 

Westbrook joins teammate Baker Mayfield (2015), Sam Bradford (2008), Jason White (2003 and 2004) and Josh Heupel (2000) as the only OU players to win the honor, and Oklahoma State’s Justin Blackmon (2010) as the only receivers to earn the award.

A finalist for the Heisman Trophy and Biletnikoff Award, Westbrook has caught 74 passes for 1,465 yards this year to go along with a school-record 16 receiving touchdowns. He leads all Power 5 players in receiving TDs per game (1.33) while ranking second in receiving yards and third in receiving yards per game (123.1).

Westbrook's Sooners will be back in action on Jan. 2 when they take on Auburn in the Sugar Bowl.
