BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – WKU Football senior Cam Thomas has been selected as one of 42 defensive backs on the 2014 College Football Performance Awards Defensive Back Trophy Watch List, the CFPA announced Monday morning.
Thomas is one of four defensive backs representing Conference USA on the CFPA Defensive Back Trophy Watch List and one of 12 defensive backs from the ‘Group of Five.’ The CFPA will announce its award winners on January 14, 2015.
Thomas led the Sun Belt Conference with 15 passes defended and five interceptions during his junior campaign, which ranked him Top 20 nationally in both categories. He was the leader of a secondary that finished 2013 ranked 10th in passing efficiency defense and 14th in total defense. Thomas finished 2013 with 41 tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss, a sack and a fumble recovery on his way to First Team All-Sun Belt Conference honors.
Thomas’ selection to the 2014 CFPA Defensive Back Trophy Watch List is his third recognition of the preseason, as he was also named a Preseason First-Team All-Conference USA defensive back by Phil Steele and Athlon Sports earlier this month.
