Treston Decoud earned Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week honors today. Check out the full release here.

In the season opener at Minnesota, Treston Decoud recorded 7 tackles (3 solo) and then on Saturday at Reser, Decoud had a stellar performance. He had 4 tackles (2 solo) and also had 2 huge interceptions one that he returned 75 yards to the house. On top of scoring his first touchdown for the Beavers he also had 2 pass deflections.

Watch the Beavers 5 forced turnovers against Idaho State below:

Decoud earned the vacant left cornerback spot after he transferred in from Northwest Mississippi Community College. He played in ten games in 2015, starting nine. He finished his 2015 campaign as the fifth leading tackler, despite missing the better part of 3 games. He also led the Beavers in passes deflected last year with 5. Treston is also cousins with Thomas Decoud who is a safety for the Carolina Panthers.

Treston Decoud is off to a strong start in his senior season and will get plenty more opportunities to showcase his talents against the pass-heavy Pac-12. Oregon State will need a few more stellar performances from Decoud if they hope to improve on their record from last season.
