UT Freshman Caden Sterns Wins Jim Thorpe Award's Player Of The Week


It has not taken long for the Longhorns freshman safety Caden Sterns to make the college football spotlight, as it was recently announced that he won the week 4 Jim Thorpe Award’s Player of the Week.

This award goes to the top defensive back in the nation each week. With his outstanding effort in a 31-16 win against a ranked TCU team, he definitely earned it.

Sterns tallied 5 tackles and 2 very important interceptions to help give Texas its third straight win. He now has 3 interceptions on the season.

Sterns joins fellow defensive backs Tyler Horton (Boise St), Aaron Wade (Utah St), and Alvin Davis (Akron) as the first 4 recipients of this award in 2018.
