Howard on Nagurski Trophy Watch List

Travin Howard
July 13, 2017

DALLAS -- TCU linebacker Travin Howard has been selected to the watch list for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, presented to the nation's top defensive player.

Howard, a first-team Preseason All-Big 12 pick, was named earlier this week to the Chuck Bednarik Award Watch List.

Howard earned first-team All-Big 12 honors last season as he led the conference and was ninth nationally with 130 tackles. It ranked third for a single season under Gary Patterson as head coach. Howard became just the second Horned Frog in 16 years under Patterson to have back-to-back campaigns with at least 100 tackles (Martin Patterson, 2003-04).

A senior from Longview, Texas, Howard is one of seven returning defensive starters for the Horned Frogs. He will represent TCU at Monday's Big 12 Media Day.

The Horned Frogs open camp July 29. The season opener is Sept. 2 versus Jackson State at Amon G. Carter Stadium.
