The weekly SEC honors have been announced and a certain opportunistic Alabama safety heard his name called.
Senior Mark Barron was named defensive player of the week after intercepting a pass, recovering a fumble and making seven tackles in the 27-11 win up at Penn State. Both turnovers came in Alabama territory with the interception at the 9-yard line. Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray earned offensive player of the week honors.
Linebacker Trey DePriest was co-freshman of the week last Monday after leading the Tide in tackles against Kent State.
Nick Saban addresses the masses coming up at noon. Check back after that for full coverage.
