The Houston Texans have selected their team award winners for the 2012 season. Recipients are selected by a vote of their teammates to recognize extra efforts both on and off the field. DE J.J. Watt was selected as the Most Valuable Player. QB Matt Schaub received the Ed Block Courage Award. G Ben Jones was voted as the Rookie of the Year. C Chris Myers was chosen as the Mark Bruener Award winner.

Watt has the most combined sacks and passes defensed in a season in NFL history with 34.5. He leads the AFC and is tied for the NFL lead with a franchise-record 19.5 sacks. Watt set an NFL record for a defensive lineman with 15 passes defensed this season.

Jones worked his way into the offensive line rotation at right guard in Week 2 against Jacksonville. He then assumed a starting role at the position in Week 7 vs.  Baltimore and has started every game since.

Schaub suffered a season-ending Lisfranc injury against Tampa Bay in Week 10 of the 2011 season. Since returning to the starting lineup, he’s thrown for 3,555 yards, which ranks fifth in the AFC, and 22 touchdowns this season. His 64.7 completion percentage is the second highest among all AFC quarterbacks.

Myers, who was voted a midseason captain, has started 78 consecutive games at center for the Texans. Now in his fifth year in Houston, he continues to be heavily involved in the community. Each year, the Mark Bruener award is given to the player who exemplifies outstanding leadership, sportsmanship, work ethic and commitment to his teammates)
