NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee State linebacker Nick Thrasher received the C.R. Bickerstaff/Coach Bill Pace University Scholar-Athlete Award at a banquet earlier this week.

The C.R. Bickerstaff/Coach Bill Pace University Scholar-Athlete Award is presented to the top university football scholar-athlete in the Middle Tennessee area based on scholarship, sportsmanship and value to the team. Bickerstaff was the long-time Executive Secretary of the Middle Tennessee Chapter of the NFF and Pace is a former head football coach at Vanderbilt University.

Thrasher is a three-year starter for TSU and led the OVC with 112 tackles and was the captain of a defense that ranked sixth nationally in yards per game (296) last season.

The Morrow, Ga. native also forced and recovered three fumbles in 2013.

Thrasher returned for his senior season and will once again man the middle linebacker spot for TSU in the fall.
