DANVILLE, Va. — Averett University football senior Dejon Brooks earned national recognition by garnering a spot on the D3football.com Team of the Week on Tuesday.
Brooks, a linebacker from Clinton, Maryland, was selected as the USA South Conference's Defensive Player of the Week on Monday after he tallied three sacks en route to setting a new program record for career sacks in a 25-6 victory over USA South foe Brevard College last Saturday. The D3football.com Preseason All-America Third Team selection was responsible for 3.5 tackles that resulted in a total loss of 18 yards. For the game, Brooks totaled 12 tackles to lead the team.
Averett (6-2, 5-1 USA South) travels to Methodist University on Saturday for a 1 p.m. kickoff.
