TBT: Zack Sanchez Wins Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week

In this week's Throwback Thursday, we take a trip back to early in the 2015 season when former Oklahoma Sooner, and one of the newest Carolina Panthers, Zack Sanchez won Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week.

Zack Sanchez is one of the newest Carolina Panthers and is expected to compete for a starting job on this defense. Before that though, he had an incredibly successful final season in Norman, OK. He won the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week award three times with the first one happening after the second game of the season.

In that game, as SoonersIllustrated.com Bob Przybylo talks about, Sanchez made the key play of the game against Tennessee with an interception in double overtime to help seal the win. He also had six tackles, as well as one for a loss, to go with the key turnover.
