JCFootball.com - Top LB Performances
Grossmont LB Ian Seau – The Griff's defense has been outstanding in their two wins this season, allowing just 10 point in those two games. This past week, in Grossmont's 36-7 win over San Diego Mesa, Seau posted a team leading eight tackles to go along with 4.5 tackles-for-loss , one forced fumble and four sacks.
Dean LB Marcus Pittard – Last week in Dean's 31-7 win over Monroe College, Pittard led the Bulldogs with 11 tackles while also managing to post 2.5 tackles for loss and a sack. In two games, Pittard has posted 21 tackles and a sack.
Erie LB Brandon Cannon – Erie has started off the season with two losses, but in last week's 17-7 defeat at the hands of Louisburg, he totaled 13 tackles and 2.5 tackles for loss. So far this year, in the Kats' two games, Cannon, freshman, has posted 19 tackles to lead the team in that category.
Hudson Valley LB Tarik Stringer – HVC dropped to 0-2 with a 40-0 loss to ASA, but don't blame Stringer. The talented and instinctive player posted 18 tackles on the season including 13 last week in the loss.
Coffeyville LB LaRon Mitchell – Martrell Spaight gets most of the press, and rightly so, but his teammate, Mitchell, has put up big numbers in three games, posting 36 tackles and a fumble recovery. This last week, in the Red Ravens' 29-23 win over Air Force Prep, Mitchell totaled 13 tackles and a tackle-for-loss.
Reedley LB Rodney Thomas – Thomas has had two solid outings for the Tigers so far this season, posting 14 tackles from his linebacker spot.
Iowa Western LB Terrell Porter – Porter has been a beast for the Rievers this season posting 28 tackles against some solid competition. However, he was in another world last weekend in Iowa Western's 44-20 win over previously unbeaten and nationally ranked Trinity Valley, racking up 17 tackles and 1.5 tackles-for-loss.
Allan Hancock LB Jamen Kealoha-Albarado – The Bulldogs got to 2-0 with a 33-20 win over El Camino last week. So far this season, the talented sophomore has posted 18 tackles and is a real force to be reckoned with for Allan Hancock.
Northeastern Oklahoma LB Jaiari Dunaway – After the Golden Norsemen's 48-19 win over Ellsworth, Dunaway was named the SWJCFC Defensive Player of the Week, posting 11 tackles (6 solo) and three sacks. On the season, the talented sophomore has 22 tackles and four sacks.
Kilgore LB Charles Woods – Kilgore got to 2-0 with a big win over Tyler last week and Woods was a big reason why, leading the team with 16 tackles and a forced fumble in the victory.
Snow LB Misi Afeaki - Last week in Snow's 47-30 loss to Georgia Military, Afeaki notched nine tackles, bringing his season total to 27 in three games.
Jones LB Damien Wilson – Wilson already has put up big numbers for the Bobcats this season and is now up to 26 tackles after notching 17 tackles in a 30-21 win over NE Mississippi.
Mississippi Delta LB LaDerius Hooker – The talented sophomore posted 13 tackles and an interception in the Trojans' 44-29 loss to Pearl River.
