Florida defensive end Jon Greenard was named SEC defensive lineman of the week, the league announced Monday. He won the defensive player of the week last week.
- Greenard posted a team-high six tackles, including five tackles for a loss of 23 yards, and two sacks for a loss of 12 yards in Saturday’s win over the Tigers to conclude the SEC slate.
- Greenard’s five tackles for loss marked the most by a Gator in a game since 2000.
- He also added one quarterback hurry in the victory, as he led a Gators’ defensive unit that held Missouri to just 256 total yards of offense.
- Additionally, the Gators’ defense has held opposing teams from the end zone for two consecutive games now.
