The watch list for the Jim Thrope award, which is presented annually to the best defensive back in college football was announced on Friday and LSU sophomore cornerback Tre'Davious White was included on the list. Per

White is hoping to become the third LSU player to win the award, joining Patrick Peterson in 2010 and Morris Claiborne in 2011.

White started 11 games as a true freshman in 2013, earning Freshman All-SEC and third-team Freshman All-America honors.

He recorded 55 tackles, 2.5 tackles for a loss and two interceptions a year ago, and he led the Tigers with seven pass breakups. His interceptions came in victories at Mississippi State and against Iowa in the Outback Bowl.
