ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The South Georgia Wildcats defense was proud of the fact they were able to step up and make big plays in the team's win over the defending AF2 champion Tennessee Valley Vipers.
One of the members of the Wildcats defense has been honored by the league for his play.
Wildcats defensive back Takashi Walker has been named the Af2's defensive player of the week.
Walker set the tone by intercepting Kevin Eakin's first pass of the game and returning 25 yards for a touchdown.
Walker also forced and recovered a fumble and led the team with five tackles.
Walker is from Jamaica and the third year veteran becomes the third international player to win a weekly player of the week honor.
Walker is just happy the defense was able to bail out the offense when it was struggling.
Takashi Walker said. "Yeah we had like one pick for the entire season. We had a couple of picks today. That was big for our offense. Help them out. They have been scoring all season. We had to help them out and we did."
Walker is the second Wildcats to earn AF2 defensive player of the week.
Linebacker Kinny Spotwood earn the honor in week one.
