Silver Minings: Tre’von Moehrig finally honored with Jim Thorpe Award

The annual ceremony didn’t happen due to COVID

It took some time, but Raiders rookie Tre’von Moehrig was finally presented with his Jim Thorpe Award earlier last week.

Along with the ceremony and him being presented with his award, Moehrig also toured the Jim Thorpe Rehabilitation Center and Paycom Headquarters.

Here is what his TCU head coach Gary Patterson told The Oklahoman:

“(Moehrig) was very loyal. When he committed to us, he didn’t take any other visits. He was always a Horned Frog, and it’s very hard to find that in this day and age... I don’t think he’ll ever do anything to embarrass the (Thorpe) name… You don’t have to worry about that.”

It was a historic win for TCU, as Moehrig became the first player in program history to take home the award in its 35-year history. He also joins Charles Woodson (1997) and Michael Huff (2005) as former Raiders to win the award.
