Kendell Beckwith had a big weekend, and he has been rewarded for his performance.
On Monday, the Senior Bowl named the LSU linebacker as its defensive senior of the week after he played a major part in the Tigers’ 45-10 victory over Southern Miss last Saturday at Tiger Stadium. Beckwith totaled a season-high 15 tackles, with 2 for a loss.
LSU needed a strong defensive performance to improve to 4-2. The Golden Eagles were held to 242 yards, and the Tigers outscored the visitors 35-0 in the second half to earn the comfortable victory.
Beckwith, who’s 6-foot-3, 247 pounds, had earned at least 10 tackles in three games this season.
