Sash on Thorpe watch list

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- Iowa's Tyler Sash has been named to the Jim Thorpe award watch list.  The Thorpe award honors the top defensive back in the country at the season's end.  The Hawkeye junior is one of 35 candidates currently on the list. 

Last season Sash finished 2nd in the Big Ten and 11th nationally in interceptions.  He currently holds the Hawkeye career record for interception return yards.

Sash and the Hawkeyes begin fall practice on Friday.
