51 SACKS IN 2011 BY THE AGGIES, MOST IN THE NATION. THE TEAM'S LEADERS, LINEBACKER SEAN PORTER (9½) AND DEFENSIVE END DAMONTRE MOORE (8½), HAVE RETURNED FOR 2012.
RB CHRISTINE MICHAEL SENIOR
He was A&M's leading rusher (899 yards) when he went down last November with an ACL tear in his left knee. With his rehab on schedule—and Cyrus Gray's 1,045 yards lost to graduation—the starting job is Michael's for the taking.
DE DAMONTRE MOORE JUNIOR
As the joker hybrid in last year's 3--4, Moore had to drop into coverage, but the team leader with 17½ tackles for loss in '11 moves to the more suitable true end position in coordinator Mark Snyder's 4--3.
