Defensive Player of the Week -
Cumberland redshirt sophomore linebacker Cody Carr earned Tennessee Sports Writers Association Player of the Week honors Wednesday after collecting a career-best 14 tackles and his first sack of the season in last week's contest versus Bethel University.
The Mt. Juliet native registered seven solo stops in the contest for CU, which limited the Wildcats to just 326 yards of offense despite Bethel starting six drives on Cumberland's side of the field. It marked the second 14-tackle performance of the season for Carr, who also tallied 14 stops at Valdosta State. He ranks second on the club with 76 tackles along with four tackles for loss this season.
Cumberland hosts Faulkner University for Senior Day and Wilson County Schools Day Saturday, Nov. 7 at Noon at Nokes-Lasater Field in the final home game for 11 seniors.
