Defensive Back | Letters 2006-2009
Aaron Webster was one of my favorites. He came to UC from the Detroit area and was good enough to get playing time on special teams as a freshman. Beyond that he was in the rotation at safety as well. But the defensive backfield was stacked while he was a young gun so he had to bide his time.
Four games into his Junior year in 2008 Webster finally got a chance to start. He started the last 23 games he played in there after. He was often the forgotten man in the secondary in 2008. Understandable with Mike Mickens, DeAngelo Smith and Brandon Underwood starting alongside him.
When the secondary became his in 2009 Webster responded big time. He lead the team in interceptions that year with four, finished third in tackles with 69 and Webster also led the Bearcats in passes defended en route to First Team All-Big East Honors. What made Webster so good that season wasn't just the total numbers, it was his knack for making big plays at the biggest moments.
