David Amerson A Finalist For The Thorpe Award

I didn't get around to this yesterday what with all the basketball stuff, but it was announced that David Amerson is one of three finalists for the Thorpe Award:

NC State sophomore cornerback David Amerson has been named a finalist for the 2011 Jim Thorpe Award, which is given annually to the top defensive back in college football. Amerson leads the FBS ranks with 11 interceptions this season, four more than any other player in that division. He actually has picked off more passes in 2011 than 82 FBS teams.

The other two finalists are from the SEC: Mark Barron of Alabama and Morris Claiborne of LSU. They have 6 interceptions between the two of them.

The winner will be announced during the college football awards show airing on ESPN on December 8th at 9 p.m. eastern.
