Harold Perkins picks up national Defensive Player of the Week honor for monster performance in LSU-Arkansas game

Harold Perkins has been turning heads in the SEC all season. Saturday, the 5-star LSU freshman linebacker helped lead the Tigers to victory over Arkansas with a monster performance in the Battle for the Golden Boot.

Perkins is the Walter Camp Football Foundation’s Defensive Player of the Week for Week 11. The announcement was made Sunday.

In a defensive battle, Perkins was the top defender on the field, recording 8 tackles, including 4 for loss, 4 quarterback sacks, 2 forced fumbles, 1 pass break up and 1 quarterback hurry.

Perkins is the 12th player from LSU to be recognized as a Walter Camp National Player of Week. Tyrion Davis-Price was the last Tiger recognized, picking up the honor on Oct. 17, 2021.

Perkins and the Tigers look to improve to 9-2 on the 2022 season with a win over UAB in Week 12.
