As the postseason is already in effect for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, so too is the annual award season. After 12 games, the Irish are 12-0 and headed to the college football playoff. A big part of that success was due to the dynamic play of cornerback Julian Love.
Love is a finalist this season for the Jim Thorpe Award — the annual trophy given to the nation’s best defensive back. A Notre Dame player has never received this award, so if Love were to win, he would be making even more history for his beloved Notre Dame.

Julian Love’s squad is also undefeated with a 12-0 record and headed to the college football playoff. Just sayin....
HELP JULIAN OUT AND VOTE
You can help Mr. Love out with winning this award by casting a vote for him. There is a fan vote, and the winner of the fan vote gets one REAL vote for the award.
Please share this with the rest of the world and help Love get that one extra vote to make history. We all have until 11:59 PM on Friday, November 30. He’s already done so much for the school and program, so we probably owe him one.
He’s already got the Irish career pass breakup record.— Notre Dame Football (@NDFootball) November 30, 2018
