Congratulations to Josh Paschal, who was just named SEC Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance vs. Eastern Michigan on Saturday.
In the fourth quarter, the freshman linebacker blocked a critical punt for an 18-yard loss, setting up Benny Snell’s 12-yard touchdown run on the next play to put the game out of reach. He also pressured the Eastern Michigan quarterback into a third down incompletion on the prior play and had a half sack in the first quarter, earning him “Blitz Cousin” status with mentors Denzil Ware and Josh Allen.
“He upgraded to Blitz Cousin,” Ware said with a laugh after the game. “I’m just playing man. Paschal, he does a lot of good things that people really don’t notice. He’s still the baby out of all of us, so he’s still going to be Blitz Baby, but at the end of the day, I’m just proud that he did something and had fun out there.”
