BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- University of North Alabama senior linebacker Harrison Bryant of Troy, Ala., has been named Gulf South Conference Defensive Player of the Week for his efforts in the Lions 31-7 rout of No. 19 ranked Delta State last Thursday.
Bryant is the second UNA defensive honoree this season and is a four-year letterman with the Lions. The senior spearheaded the Lions' defense to a 31-7 road win over Delta State, 31-7. Bryant posted a game-high 11 total tackles, led by a game-best eight solo stops and one tackle for a loss of four yards. He also nabbed his first interception of the year, which halted a DSU drive at the North Alabama 35-yard line and led to a UNA field goal.
Kickoff for UNA's Saturday game against West Alabama is at 6 p.m.
