4. Quay Walker
The first Georgia football player that earned his helmet sticker was Quay Walker, as he led the team with 13 total tackles.
CBS didn’t mention Walker that much over the broadcast, so instead, he silently dominated the Gators. After getting the stats, seeing his name at the top of the list shows why this defense is better than anyone else in the country.
Georgia has a no-name defense, we know this by now, but it’s true. Seven different players have led the team in tackles through eight games. The only person to lead the team twice is Walker.
The last two games have seen Walker lead Georgia in tackles as he recorded nine against Kentucky and then 13 against the Gators.
It would have been three games, but Dan Jackson beat him out by one tackle against Auburn.
On the season, Walker is No. 4 on the tackle list with 35 total. He has 2.5 tackles for loss, one sack, one pass breakup, 10 quarterback hurries and one fumble recovery.
Walker is extremely talented, and he earns this sticker for all the hard work he is putting in for this defense.
When you lead this kind of defense two weeks in a row, it’s time to start highlighting Walker right along with the rest of the major defensive players.
Walker is a head hunting machine, and with four games left in the regular season, it’ll be exciting to see how he finishes his last season at Georgia.
