New Haven, Conn. - The Walter Camp Football Foundation announced today its first 2013 Football Bowl Subdivision National Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week, presented by Generation UCAN. Virginia junior strong safety Anthony Harris (Chesterfield, Va.) was selected as the national defensive player of the week.
Harris posted 11 tackles, including three solo stops, recorded one quarterback sack, blocked a punt and intercepted a pass in UVa's season-opening 19-16 victory against BYU.
Harris' blocked punt in the third quarter set up Virginia's first touchdown.
With UVa trailing 16-12 and three minutes left to play, Harris picked off a third-down BYU pass, returned it six yards and then pitched the ball to linebacker Henry Coley, who ran another 27 yards. Virginia scored the winning touchdown on the next play.
Alabama wide receiver Christion Jones was the offensive player of the week. Jones accounted for 256 all-purpose yards and three touchdowns as the top-ranked Crimson Tide defeated Virginia Tech, 35-10.
This is the 10th year that the Walter Camp Football Foundation will honor one offensive and one defensive player as its national Football Bowl Subdivision player of the week during the regular season. Recipients are selected by a panel of national media members and administered by the Foundation.
