Yesterday, I got to go to a lunch for the Jim Thorpe Award, which is the award given yearly recognizing the college football’s best defensive back. The award is always presented every year in Oklahoma City. Past winners include Deion Sanders (1988), Charles Woodson (1997) and Roy Williams (2001).
This year’s winner is Eric Berry, former defensive back of the University of Tennessee Volunteers and future top 5 pick in this year’s NFL Draft. I got to meet him, talk a little, congratulate him on winning this award, and he signed a couple autographs for me.
As a Vols fan, this was a cool moment. Go Big Orange!!!
