Three Wildcats recognized by preseason publications

By The Mercury

K-State wide receiver Tyler Lockett, defensive end Ryan Mueller and offensive lineman B.J. Finney each garnered preseason accolades, as several national publications have released their preseason All-America teams.

Lockett, a senior from Tulsa, Okla., was named to the first team by Sporting News and USA Today Sports as a wide receiver, while Athlon put Lockett on its first team as an all-purpose player. Lindy’s and Phil Steele each placed Lockett on the second team as a wide receiver.

Mueller also earned second-team honors from Phil Steele and was placed on the third team by Athlon, while both publications selected Finney for the third team.

K-State opens the 2014 campaign on Aug. 30 with a 6:10 p.m.  game against Stephen F. Austin — a contest that will be shown on K-StateHD.TV.

K-State Athletics officials announced Thursday that season tickets for the 2014 season are sold out, and information regarding single-game tickets will be released this Tuesday.
