After recording two interceptions including one he returned 66 yards for a touchdown in TCU’s 48-17 win over SMU, junior safety Sam Carter (Alief, TX) has been named the Jim Thorpe Defensive Back of the Week.

Carter’s first interception came in the third quarter with the game tied at 10 and his 25-yard return set up a TCU touchdown just five plays later. His second interception and subsequent return for a touchdown sealed the game. Carter also added five tackles, a sack and forced a fumble. 

Carter, a member of the Jim Thorpe Award preseason watch list, also becomes the 13th Horned Frog that has recorded multiple interceptions in a game under head coach Gary Patterson.
