Iowa State's Cotton-Moya Selected To Thorpe Award Watch List

Andre Chachere Named To Paycom Jim Thorpe Award Watch List WKU's Brown named to Thorpe Award Watch List

Fitzpatrick finished fourth on the team last season with 66 tackles.

The junior cornerback was one of 45 players selected to the 2017 preseason watch list for the Thorpe Award by the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame on Friday.

This season will be no different as Wadood will continue to dominate at his position and along with the talents of Adarius Pickett, Nate Meadors and Octavious Spencer (just to name a few), the Bruins will continue to have one of the best secondaries in the Pac-12. The senior is tied for the team lead among returning Bruin players with 31 career starts. The award was established in 1986 and is named after the great all-around athlete, Jim Thorpe.

Cotton-Moya is one of ISU's leaders on defense, earning Second-Team All-Big 12 honors in 2016 after leading the team in solo tackles (58), ranking sixth in the Big 12 and 12 nationally. The award is given annually to the best defensive back in college football based on performance on the field, athletic ability and character.

OIC condemns Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir
Nuclear-armed rivals India and Pakistan each administer part of Kashmir, but both claim the Himalayan territory in its entirety. This will not only harm the peace and stability of the two countries but also the peace and tranquillity of the region.

Nebraska has never had a defensive back win the Thorpe Award.

Jones joins offensive tackle Nick Gates (Outland Trophy) and kicker Drew Brown (Groza Award) as Huskers who have been highlighted so far this watch list season. In addition to his legendary performance on the football field, Thorpe played professional baseball and won Olympic gold medals in the decathlon and pentathlon. The list is not final, and players who have outstanding seasons are added as the season progresses.

USC Football notched its second Jim Thorpe Award a year ago victor with Adoree Jackson and now the Trojans are hoping for a repeat with Iman Marshall. The official presentation of the award will be on February 6, 2018 in Oklahoma City.
