New Orleans, Louisiana 2021-09-27 12:04:00 –
LSU linebacker Damon Clark won the Southeastern Conference defensive player on Monday after recording a career-leading 15 tackles against Mississippi.
Senior Clark leads the SEC in 41 this season.
He also regained the fumble, returned the ball 35 yards and set the first touchdown for LSU’s 28-25 wins.
“I should have recorded it,” Clark laughed. “It’s in me.”
While Clark was in the midst of a 3-2-6 defense plan, LSU forced Mississippi to throw a short pass. The Tigers then tackled well in the open field, keeping the bulldog at 5.5 yards per play with 88 snaps and above.
“We are proud of the way our team fought,” Clark said. “We fought to the end. We can’t be any more proud of how our team plays.”
