    On a wet Saturday night in September 2016, Xavier Thigpen feasted. A season-high four tackles-for-loss against Troy, the most by a Golden Eagle since Cleveland Brown Jamie Collins recorded the same in 2012. Thigpen has continued his tenacious play through three games of 2017: Nine tackles, one sack and a fumble recovery to the end zone so far. This season will be the last ride for "PawPaw" Thigpen.
