Football: Kwarteng Named Sun Belt Defensive Player of the Week

Louisiana-Lafayette senior defensive end had six tackles and two sacks in win over Middle Tennessee

Matt Hebert, Sports Information –

LAFAYETTE – On the heels of posting a school-record nine sacks and holding Middle Tennessee to just 45 yards rushing, it was only fitting that a member of Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns football team’s defensive unit was named as one of the Sun Belt Conference Players of the Week.

Senior defensive end Eugene Kwarteng, who posted two of the Cajuns’ record nine sacks, was named the Sun Belt Conference’s Defensive Player of the Week on Monday.

Kwarteng had six total tackles and two sacks, leading a Cajun defense that allowed a season-low 263 total yards in a 13-10 win at Middle Tennessee.

Five of his six tackles were solo and three of them threw the Blue Raiders for a total of 15 yards lost.

After falling behind 10-0 thru one quarter, the Cajuns defense pitched a shutout for the final three quarters, allowing 12 rushing yards and 146 total yards.

The SBC Defensive POW honor is just the third for the Ragin’ Cajuns, as C.C. Brown was the first Cajuns recipient back on Oct. 27, 2003 and Johnny Felders grabbed the second honor earlier this season on Sept. 19, 2005.
