Former CDO and current Arizona Wildcat football player Jared Tevis earned a distinction from NFL.com. Tevis was named one of the 14 toughest player for the ’14 college football season.
Tevis, a senior safety, was No. 6 on the list, which was headed up by Nate Terhune a defensive lineman from Kent State.
In their evaluation NFL.com wrote:
“(Tevis) has developed into one of the most productive -- and biggest-hitting -- safeties in the Pac-12.”
As a former walk-on the site was impressed by his toughness, explaining that he was bothered by a sprained ankle in 2012 but “still managed to play in 11 games and finish third on the team with 82 tackles.”
He was also praised for playing through a knee injury last year and still finished third on the team in tackles and forcing three fumbles.
They predict some good things for Tevis in 2014, “Tevis should contend for all-league honors this fall.”
