The NFL has released its 2012 Pro-Bowl rosters for this season. 

There are the usual big names and also a few east Texans that will be heading to Honolulu in February.

Former Longview Lobo and current Washington Redskins offensive lineman Trent Williams makes his first Pro-Bowl, he is joined by Minnesota Vikings running back and Palestine native Adrian Peterson, who makes another trip after a spectacular season. 

The Houston Texans had the second most players selected with eight, lead by running back Arian Foster, quarterback Matt Schuab and receiver Andre Johnson.

They also had three offensive linemen, Duane Brown, Wade Smith and Chris Myers. 

The only Texans on defense selected was cornerback Johnathan Joseph and lineman JJ Watt, who has a chance to break the single-season sack record.
