DALLAS (FWAA) – Auburn safety Junior Rosegreen (Fort Lauderdale,
Fla.) is this week's recipient of the Bronko Nagurski National Defensive
Player of the Week award for his performance in the Tigers' 34-10 win
over Tennessee this past Saturday.
The senior tied a 65-year-old Southeastern Conference record when he
intercepted four passes in Auburn's victory at Tennessee. He also collected
six tackles (two unassisted) in Knoxville as Auburn won first the first
time at Neyland Stadium since 1983. Rosegreen has five interceptions this
season, tying him for the national lead, and eight for his career.
For the fourth straight season, the All-America committee of the the
Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) will select the winner of
the weekly award on behalf of the Charlotte Touchdown Club. The winner is
announced each Tuesday throughout the season.
Rosegreen has been added to the Watch List for the 2004 Bronko Nagurski
Trophy which will be presented on Dec. 6 in Charlotte, N.C., by the FWAA
and the Charlotte Touchdown Club.
