Alabama LB Will Anderson took home college football’s top defensive award for the second year in a row. Anderson was awarded the Bronko Nagurski Trophy and is the first back-to-back recipient since Northwestern’s Pat Fitzgerald who won the award in 1995 and 1996.

Anderson was also named the SEC Defensive Player of the Year by the AP earlier on Monday while also making first-team All-SEC as well.

In his 2022 season, Anderson recorded 51 total tackles, 17.0 tackles for loss, 10.0 sacks, 12 quarterback hits, one pass breakup and one interception returned for a touchdown.
