Jeffery Simmons has done it again against a team from Louisiana. The talented sophomore defensive lineman is being recognized by the SEC as the SEC defensive lineman of the week for the second week in a row.

Simmons had 1.5 sacks and 7 tackles on Saturday while constantly disrupting the LSU offense and commanding the Tigers to double team him. Simmons has had a phenomenal start to the season, and under Grantham’s tutelage, he can have one heck of a career.
