Ridge Texada FAU

North Texas cornerback Ridge Texada (26) beats Florida Atlantic wide receiver Ja’Quan Burton to intercept a pass and return it for a touchdown.

Ridge Texada was convinced he was a Football Bowl Subdivision player long before anyone else believed in him.

Texada was considered far too small even as a cornerback at 5-foot-8.
