The media put Sills on the All-Big 12 First Team last season.

A redshirt senior, Sterling made 74 tackles last season, most on the team for any non-linebackers. He also had a pair of interceptions, two fumble recoveries and four pass breakups.
Another senior, Rodriguez led the Cowboys in tackles last season with 82. He had four tackles for loss and three sacks. He was voted an All-Big 12 Second Teamer in 2019 and 2020.
