Top Cat Of The Week: Avery Williamson Leads SEC In Tackles

09/18/2013 05:00 PM

Every Wednesday, KSTV will highlight the current player, former Wildcat, or coach who had the most impressive week.

For the inaugural Top Cat of the Week, I had to give the honor to senior linebacker Avery Williamson. He survived the Joker-Phillips era and entered the Mark Stoops one with enthusiasm. He’s already making the most of his senior, recording 35 tackles this season. That’s good enough for a comfortable lead amongst all defensive players. See the top five below.

1. Avery Williamson-UK………..35
2. Howard Matthews-A&M………26
3. Kenny Lader-Vandy………….24
4. Amarlo Herrera-UG…………..24
5. Ramik Wilson-UG……………..22

Against Louisville, Williamson had 15 tackles, eight of which were solo tackles. With one particularly forceful tackle, Williamson inspired our very own Thomas Beisner to tweet “I’M A MAN! I’M 40!” Avery, keep up the good work and keep those SEC offenses out of the end zone.
