A word of advice: Don’t try to snatch a purse when there’s a former Big 12 cornerback around.
Former Kansas State cornerback Kip Daily is now a police officer in Carrollton, Tex., and he’s still getting chances to flash his Division I speed. According to the Carrollton Police Department Twitter account, a would-be thief tried to steal a purse and outrun Officer Daily on Wednesday. The robber didn’t get too far.
Hey .@kstatesports .@KStateFB , thanks for preparing 2013 star Defensive Back Kip Daily for a great career with us! A purse snatcher tried to run from Officer Daily today. Needless to say, Daily was a tad faster. pic.twitter.com/ovi2y4BKFi

That should be a reminder to prospective thieves not to try anything when Daily is around. Daily played two seasons with Kansas State from 2012-13, earning Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week honors against UMass in 2013.
Daily finished his Kansas State career with 49 tackles and 2 interceptions in 19 games played.
Daily transferred to Kansas State after playing at Blinn College for two seasons, and he started all 13 games during his senior year. That year, he showed off a knack for making big plays. Daily scored two non-offensive touchdowns as a senior, including a 65-yard blocked field goal return against Oklahoma State. He also added an interception return touchdown against UMass.
He saved his most notable performance for Wednesday on his beat.
