In 2013, a young Zack Sanchez stepped onto the field in a starting role for the Oklahoma Sooners as a redshirt freshman. Finishing the season by starting all 13 games, the future star recorded 13 pass break ups along side 46 tackles.

However, the most impressive play produced by the budding star came against the Kansas State Wildcats in November of that year. A low snap picked up by KSU quarterback, Jake Waters, was thrown towards a tightly covered receiver just beyond the first down marker. Holding his ground, Sanchez reaches up securing the first interception of his career.

Racing down the opponent's sideline with plenty of blockers, the cornerback crosses the goal line adding six points on the scoreboard. An instinctive player, the cornerback quickly made his presence known in the Big XII Conference earning Freshman All-American honors.

The two interceptions on the year were just the beginning of Sanchez's career.
