Junior preserves win over Georgia

DALLAS (FWAA) LSU's Corey Webster (Vacherie, La.) is this week's recipient of the Bronko Nagurski National Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in the Tigers' 17-10 victory over Georgia this past Saturday.

The Bronko Nagurski Trophy

The junior cornerback made nine tackles (eight unassisted), intercepted a pass, collected five pass deflections and added a quarterback pressure against Georgia. His interception of a David Greene pass at the LSU 22-yard line with less than a minute remaining assured the Tigers the victory. The 6-0, 201-pounder now has 10 career interceptions.

For the third straight season, a panel from the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) selects the winner of the weekly award on behalf of the Charlotte Touchdown Club. The winner is announced each Tuesday throughout the season.

Webster will be added to the Watch List for the 2003 Bronko Nagurski Trophy which will be presented on Dec. 8 in Charlotte, N.C., by the FWAA and the Charlotte Touchdown Club.
