Over the past few days, MIami Hurricanes DE Gregory Rousseau has won several awards for his outstanding game against Florida State.

After an 8 tackle, 5 TFL, 4 sack dominating showing against the rival Seminoles, Rousseau was named the Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week on Sunday.

Rousseau is the first Hurricanes player to win Camp National Defensive Player of the Week since Jaquan Johnson earned this award following his performance in Miami’s 41-8 blowout win over Notre Dame back in 2017.

Additionally, on Monday morning, Rousseau was named ACC Defensive Lineman of the Week for the same elite, dominating performance at FSU we’ve already noted.

Already tied for 4th in single-season sacks in Miami Hurricanes History, Rousseau looks to be just scratching the surface of his immense physical ability and performance potential. Tied for 2nd nationally with 12 sacks, Rousseau is already the first Canes player with double-digit sacks since Calais Campbell had 10.5 sacks back in 2006.

Congratulations to Gregory Rousseau on a stellar season, and dominant performance at FSU, and earning the conference and National Awards he so richly deserves.
