Tennessee sophomore defensive back Evan Berry was named the SEC Special Teams Player of the Year in an announcement made by the conference on Wednesday.
Berry became the first Volunteers player to be named First Team All-SEC as a return man yesterday. He led the nation with an average of 38.29 yards per kick return with three kick return touchdowns on the season. Those three touchdowns tied a Vols single-season record held by Willie Gault in 1980. He racked up 804 yards on just 21 returns this season.
Evan Berry is keeping the Berry name proud in Knoxville, Tenn. His older brother, Eric, was an All-American at Tennessee and is now a Pro Bowl safety for the Kansas City Chiefs.
