After a stellar debut in the Orange and Blue, Florida DE Jonathan Greenard earned the SEC’s Defensive Lineman of the Week for the opening week of play.

Greenard, who transferred to Florida from Louisville as a grad-transfer in the off-season, led a fantastic effort by the Gators front seven. He recorded six tackles, two for loss, and 1.5 sacks.

Florida sacked Miami QB Jarren Williams ten times and limited the Hurricanes to just 2-13 on third down.

The Gators will face Tennessee-Martin in their home opener on Saturday. The game is slated for a 7:30 kick off and will air on ESPNU.

*Alabama’s NT DJ Dale also garnered Defensive Lineman of the Week honors.
