Tech's Hyder third among DTs in national stat category, but 'disappointed' with his play

Texas Tech’s Kerry Hyder was rewarded with first-team All-Big 12 recognition last season after he led the league’s defensive tackles in sacks (six) and tackles for loss (14).

Now a senior, Hyder’s on pace to top his tackles for loss number with 10 through the first seven games. Nationally, only two players listed as defensive tackles or nose tackles — Pittsburgh’s Aaron Donald and Wake Forest’s Nikita Whitlock, a Texan from Wylie — have more TFLs.
