Underrated Texas A&M players: Jason Webster

We stay on the defensive side of the ball with this next pick but are still keeping it in the 20th century. Jason Webster, a cornerback from 1996-99, is the most underrated player to play defense for the Texas A&M Aggies. Webster’s stats don’t jump off the page but don’t let that fool you on the type of player Webster was. Since stepping onto the field his freshman year, Webster never missed a game and played a big role in the “Wrecking Crew” defense.

Webster’s freshman year was also the Texas A&M’s first in the Big 12 conference, and in his sophomore and junior years, the Aggies claimed back-to-back conference championships. In those two seasons, Webster started every game, totaling 133 tackles, 16 pass breakups, two interceptions and one fumble recovery. Webster even had a punt return touchdown in 1998 in his first-ever attempt to do so. Maybe he could’ve had a more but he also played behind Dante Hall so that ends that discussion.

Webster finally started to be recognized in his senior season. Webster not only won team defensive MVP but was also named to the All-Big 12 team and the All-American team, playing in a team-high 640 defensive snaps, totaling 74 tackles, four interceptions and 10 pass breakups. Webster would also earn the honor as the 1999 recipient of Aggie Heart Award, which is voted on by the entire team by a senior who displays and embodies the Aggie way. A great honor to end an even greater, and not-so-talked-about career
