University of Kentucky defensive end Denzil Ware has been named SEC co-defensive lineman of the week. The award was due to Ware’s excellent performance against the Vanderbilt Commodores on Saturday, where he recorded two quarterback sacks and another tackle. In addition, Ware intercepted a Kyle Shurmur pass that had been batted down by teammate Adrian Middleton. The junior from Opp, Alabama has 6.5 sacks and 9.0 tackles for loss on the year. He has recorded 38 total tackles and has recovered two fumbles, one he returned for a touchdown in the Southern Miss game. We look forward to Ware adding to those numbers against Georgia on Saturday in Athens.
