Volunteers defensive end Derek Barnett was named a first-team Associated Press All-American on Monday. Appropriately, Tennessee marked the occasion with a slick tribute video that showcases Barnett’s destruction.
Give the clip below a spin and watch Barnett bully offenses. It’s easy to see why he has earned the reputation as one of the SEC’s top defensive forces.

Barnett led the SEC with 12 sacks this season, and he also paced the league with 18 tackles for loss.
On Monday, the junior said he would make a decision about the NFL Draft after Tennessee’s matchup against Nebraska in the Music City Bowl on Dec. 30.
The Volunteers will enter the game 8-4 overall with a 4-4 mark in the SEC.
