NORMAN, Oklahoma -

University of Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones is one of five NCAA FBS student-athletes picked to the 2012 Senior CLASS Award All-America First Team in collegiate football. To be eligible for this recognition, Jones was classified as an NCAA Division I FBS senior and had notable achievements in four areas of excellence - community, classroom, character and competition. Jones was one of 10 finalists for the 2012 Senior CLASS Award that was won by Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o.

Jones concluded his collegiate career with a 39-11 (.780) record as a starter at OU, giving him the most victories in school history. The Artesia, N.M., native also ranks as OU's all-time career leader in passing yards (16,646), passing yards per game (314.1), pass attempts (2,184), pass completions (1,388), 300-yard games (27), 400-yard games (12), TD passes (123), total offense (16,271) and total offense per game (307.0). His 16,646 career passing yards and 16,271 total yards are the highest career totals in Big 12 Conference history.

An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School, the Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.
