Jordan Battle Leads Thorpe Watch List

Alabama Crimson Tide

Alabama defensive back Jordan Battle leads the Jim Thorpe Award Watch List released on July 25.

The Thorpe Award is presented annually to the nation’s best defensive back and is named for Thorpe, who is widely considered one of the best athletes of all-time.

Battle was part of a Crimson Tide team that won the SEC and reached the College Football Playoff Championship Game before losing to Georgia.

Battle and Alabama are featured in the 2022 College Football America Yearbook.

The College Football America 2022 Yearbook features more than 900 college football teams from the United States and Canada in more than 250 striking, full-color pages. That includes every team from the NCAA (FBS, FCS, Division II and Division III), NAIA, NJCAA, CCCAA and U Sports (Canada). It also includes dozens of action shots and stadium photos taken by the CFA staff.
