48 Days Until the College Football Season Kicks Off
Let's look at a pass rusher.
Yesterday for day 49, we took a look at a dominant linebacker that played in the SEC. For day 48, we highlight a pass rusher that played in the West that Patrick Willis played against in the Super Bowl.
Terrell Suggs played college football close to home at Arizona State. The Hamilton High alum was named Arizona Gatorade Player of the Year, USA Today Arizona Player of the Year, and the nations 60th best player.
Suggs played for the Sun Devils from 2000 to 2002 for Bruce Snyder and Dirk Koetter. Suggs finished his Arizona State career with one hundred and sixty three tackles, sixty five for loss, forty four sacks, fourteen forced fumbles, and nine pass deflections.
His college career was loaded with awards as he won PAC-10 Freshman of the Year in 2000. 2002 was a loaded year as we was named First Team All PAC-10, PAC-12 Defensive Player of the Year, All American, the Hendricks Award, the Nagurski Trophy, and the Lombardi Award.
The six foot three pass rusher from Minneapolis broke the single season sack record when he recorded twenty four sacks in 2002.
Suggs was drafted tenth overall by the Baltimore Ravens who he played with from 2003 to 2018 and followed up his career with the Chiefs and Cardinals.
For tomorrow’s countdown, we look at one of the best college defenders of all time that played down in the south for the bulldogs.
