After a lackluster start for the Texas A&M football team’s defensive unit, the Aggies have begun to shut the Lobos down. Josh DeBerry, in particular, has been involved a lot defensively so far. He’s been in run support and covering downfield very effectively. He showed his quality on this INT he grabbed in the second quarter.
The pressure put on the Lobo QB by star DT McKinnley Jackson caused him to hurl an ill-advised pass into this Texas A&M football team’s secondary, leading to DeBerry’s play. Durkin’s unit has begun flying around.
The Aggies would follow up this play with yet another touchdown pass to Noah Thomas.
The whole Aggie team is really showing out—yes, against a lower-quality opponent, but the improvement, especially offensively, is palpable. This looks like an Aggie team that is hungry and ready to compete for a division title against the Alabamas and LSUs of the world. If they are to do so, of course, they’ll need a lot more plays just like this one. Generating turnovers is a huge emphasis for any defense, and it looks like DeBerry is a guy with the nose for the ball.
