Florida pass rushers Jonathan Greenard and Mohamoud Diabate were featured in the SEC’s weekly awards announcement on Monday.

Greenard was distinguished as the conference’s Defensive Lineman of the Week, while Diabate was named Co-Freshman of the Week.

Seven different Gators have received Player of the Week honors in 2019, as Greenard has now received them twice (Week 1).

The graduate transfer had three tackles (0.5 tackle for loss) against Vanderbilt, but his 80-yard fumble return for a touchdown electrified The Swamp and surely vaulted him toward another honor.

Diabate was the man who forced that fumble, as he had three sacks en route to his honors.

Full List of Week 11 Players of the Week:

Offense: Joe Burrow, QB, LSU

Defense: Daniel Bituli, LB, Tennessee

Special Teams: Rodrigo Blankenship, PK, Georgia

Offensive Line: Ben Cleveland, OL, Georgia

Defensive Line: Jonathan Greenard, DL, Florida

Freshman: John Rhys Plumlee, QB, Ole Miss; Mohamoud Diabate, LB, Florida
