Georgia Southern senior defensive end Logan Hunt was named the Sun Belt defensive player of the week this week for his performance against Arkansas State.

Hunt totaled a career-high nine tackles against a potent Red Wolves defense. The senior also sacked Justice Hansen three times, another career-high.

Hunt and the defensive line swarmed the ASU offense all night totaling six sacks after entering Saturday’s game with 3.5 total sacks through the first three games.

This is the second GS player to end DPOTW honors, joining senior inside linebacker Tomarcio Reese after his performance against South Carolina State.
