Josh Allen has been named Walter Camp Defensive Player after his performance on Saturday.
Josh Allen played a massive part in Kentucky’s 15-14 victory over the Tigers, as he led a defense that only allowed 49 yards and didn’t give up a single first down to Missouri in the 2nd half. Against the Tigers, Allen racked up 11 tackles (nine solo), including a pair of quarterback sacks, both of which caused fumbles.
Josh Allen leads the SEC and is second in the nation in sacks with ten on the year. In the Tackle for loss category, he is also leading the SEC (third nationally) with 14.5. Alen also ranks second in the country with five forced fumbles.
The awards keep piling up for the senior as he can put this accomplishment beside being named a mid-season all American and being named the defensive player of the week three times. If I had to venture to guess, he’ll get another player of the week award from the SEC sometime this week. Allen is also on the watch list for the nation’s top defensive awards, such as the Lott IMPACT Trophy, the Bednarik Award, and the Butkus Award.
Even fighting through blatant holds, that don’t get called, Josh Allen is still a monster, and he’s getting the recognition he deserves. After all, he did warn Missouri.

If he’s not a first round pick come April in Nashville, you can color me shocked.
