As always, keep track of both the stats and roster countdowns in the Offseason Hub!


With 79 days to go until Baylor kicks off its 2022 football season, let’s look back at one of last year’s best players: JT Woods.

The 2.5-year starter at safety was drafted by the Los Angeles Chargers with the 79th overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft.

Woods played in 50 games for the Bears across his four years in Waco. He racked up 28 starts, 157 total tackles, 9 interceptions, 4 fumbles recovered, and one sack. The interceptions in particular helped him live up to his nickname “The Heartbreak Kid”. The San Antonio native also amassed 201 interception return yards and a 97-yard scoop and score against Texas Southern. He capped off his Baylor career in fashion by grabbing two interceptions against Ole Miss in the 2022 Sugar Bowl.

Woods is now on a team with a young star QB, Justin Herbert, and great ambition, having missed the playoffs the last three years in a row.

I'd like to see Woods break a few hearts in the NFL!
