WATCH: Texas freshman Caden Sterns makes leaping interception on 1st play against Tulsa

Posted September 8th, 2018


As far as first impressions go, Caden Sterns could not have done much better in his first home game as a Longhorn.

The Texas freshman safety intercepted Tulsa quarterback Luke Skipper on the first play from scrimmage Saturday at Royal-Memorial Stadium. Three plays later, the Longhorns took a 7-0 lead on a 1-yard run by quarterback Sam Ehlinger.



The touchdown was set up by a 36-yard pass from Ehlinger to Lil’Jordan Humphrey.
