C.J. Mosley is the heart of the Alabama Crimson Tide defense, and after his performance against the Arkansas Razorbacks is our first defensive player of the week.
The senior linebacker from Theodore, Al. continues to be quarterback of Alabama’s defense, and his performance in Alabama’s 52-0 victory against the Hawgs was no exception. Mosley had ten tackles against Arkansas – with five of those solo tackles – and added one pass breakup.
Mosley, who has been in on 58 total tackles on the season, was one of four players from the SEC named to the Sports Illustrated 2013 Mid-Season All-America team.
