Verrett Tabbed an All-American
Dec. 6, 2012
NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- TCU cornerback Jason Verrett has been named a second-team All-American by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.
Verrett tops the Big 12 in interceptions (6) and passes defended (20). He is the only player in the nation to rank in the top 10 nationally in both categories. Verrett helps anchor a TCU defense that tops the Big 12 and ranks 18th nationally despite having only one senior on its depth chart.
A junior from Fairfield, Calif., Verrett will head to New Haven, Conn., next month to take part in the Walter Camp All-America weekend.
Verrett was a first-team All-Big 12 selection. The San Antonio Express-News tabbed him the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year.
In addition to his efforts on defense, Verrett has also made his mark on special teams. He blocked a West Virginia field-goal attempt in the first overtime, paving the way for the Horned Frogs to win in double overtime.
