UTC's Tull Earns Sports Network Co-Player Of The Week

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

University of Tennessee at Chattanooga junior defensive lineman Davis Tull exploded for 3.5 sacks in the Mocs win over Furman on Saturday.  For his play, Tull has earned a pair of national weekly honors. 

On Monday, he was named The Sports Network’s National Defensive co-Player of the Week.  Today he was recognized as the National Defensive Player of the Week by the College Football Performance Awards. 

Tull also recovered one of the two fumbles he forced against the Paladins, while adding five tackles.  This is the first weekly national honors for the consensus All-American and preseason Southern Conference Defensive Player of the Year. 

The Knoxville, Tenn., native is currently second in the SoCon and No. 14 in the FCS with 5.5 sacks.  His 23.0 career sacks are No. 2 on the Mocs all-time list and just 0.5 behind former teammate Josh Williams (2009-12).  He is also No. 5 in the FCS in career sacks among active players. 

Tull and the Mocs (4-2, 2-1 SoCon) travel to Elon this weekend for a SoCon matchup against The Phoenix (2-5, 1-2 SoCon).  Kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m. (E.D.T.) in Rhodes Stadium on Saturday, Oct. 19.

Trump - And Response

Hardly a day, even a moment, goes by when some news flash appears sharing what  Trump  said or did.
