TCU Football: Hodges-Tomlinson Named To Jim Thorpe Award Watch List


Last week, several TCU football players were named to the watch lists for various offensive awards. This week, it’s the defensive players’ turn. Tre’Vius Hodges-Tomlinsoncornerback, was named to the Paycom Jim Thorpe Award watch list.

This award is presented annually to the nation’s best defensive back. It is based on performance on the field plus athletic ability and character. It is one of the National College Football Awards’ most coveted honors. The award was established in 1986 and is named after Jim Thorpe, a native Oklahoman who excelled in several sports, including two gold medals in the 1912 Olympic Games. In football, he played running back, punter and placekicker but shined in his role as a defensive back.
