Gators' Dante Fowler, Jr. earns weekly SEC honor
Florida DL Dante Fowler, Jr. has been named the SEC Defensive Player of the Week for his outstanding performance in the Gators' win over Tennessee.
Fowler, a St. Petersburg Lakewood alum, is the first Florida player to earn SEC weekly honors this season.
Fowler had two forced fumbles, three tackles for loss (for 15 yards) and the Gators' only sack in the victory over the Vols.
"It feels good, it's a blessing to be named SEC Player of the Week," Fowler said. "It's a lot of great players in the SEC, especially defensive players. So being able to stand out, and come out on top and be SEC Player of the Week, it's an honor."
