Swearinger Named National Defensive Player of the Week

November 12, 2012

South Carolina’s D.J. Swearinger heads for the endzone on a 69-yard interception return against Arkansas Saturday afternoon at Williams-Brice Stadium.

South Carolina senior defensive back D.J. Swearinger has been named the National Defensive Player of the Week by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.  Swearinger, a 6-0, 210-pounder from Greenwood, S.C., totaled a career-best 13 tackles (10 solo), including one for a loss, and added one interception which he returned 69 yards for a touchdown as the 12th-ranked Gamecocks defeated Arkansas, 38-20. Swearinger added one quarterback hurry as South Carolina improved to 8-2, 6-2 in the SEC.  The SEC swept the weekly awards, as Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was named the National Offensive Player of the Week for his efforts in a win over top-ranked Alabama.
