Texas A&M freshman free safety Trent Hunter couldn't have asked for a better debut, logging 17 tackles -- including 11 solos -- while spying the quarterback in the Aggies' 21-17 win over Army. On Monday, Hunter was named the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week, marking the first time an A&M player has been honored this season. The former Katy standout played in place of junior Jordan Peterson, who was nursing shoulder and elbow injuries. Peterson is return to practice this week, but defensive coordinator Joe Kines said it is too early to determine who will start against No. 21 Oklahoma State.
