Curry Sexton (b. Aug. 16, 1991) is a good athlete who has been a regular in the rotation at wide receiver during the last two years, while also contributing on special teams. He grayshirted in 2010, but did not redshirt in 2011.

Tyler Lockett had all the press that year, but he wasn't the only true freshman to burn his redshirt and contribute immediately. It just took Sexton a little longer to make a big impact on the field. All he needed was a chance.

That chance came with Lockett's lacerated kidney and prematurely ended season in the Oklahoma State game.

We needed a playmaker to step up and replace him, and Sexton delivered immediately. His breakout game came against Texas A&M with two catches for 33 yards. Both of them were absolutely critical third-down conversions.

Sexton saw action in 11 games in 2012 as both a receiver and on special teams. He earned starts in the season opener against Missouri State and at Iowa State, and he also made four special teams tackles.

Sexton made one catch for 20 yards against Missouri State before hauling in his first career touchdown reception, a 27-yarder against Miami. Then he came back with two catches against North Texas.

He also caught one pass for 9 yards against Oklahoma State and another for 8 yards at TCU.

Sexton also earned first-team Academic All-Big 12 honors in both 2011 and 2012.
