BigPurpleNation.com has learned that star TCU safety Stephen Hodge has been named to the elite Watch List for the 2008 Jim Thorpe Award, an award presented each year to the nation's top defensive back.

Hodge has also been named to the Watch List for the 2008 Bronco Nagurski Trophy, which honors the nation's best defensive player.

A preseason All-America pick, Hodge was named to the All Mountain West Conference team in 2007 after leading the nation in sacks by a defensive back with eight sacks. The senior from Tatum, Texas was also among the Horned Frogs' team leaders in tackles, tackles for a loss, and pass break-ups last season.

Hodge was named to the All-Texas team earlier this summer by Dave Campbell's Texas Football, which also named the TCU star the Best Defensive Back in the State of Texas.
