Ferguson garners accolade
DALLAS – After putting together yet another record-breaking season, Louisiana Tech defensive end Jaylon Ferguson has been named the 2018 Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year.
Ferguson becomes the first Bulldog to be named Defensive Player of the Year since Louisiana Tech joined Conference USA in 2013.
The last time Louisiana Tech had a Defensive Player of the Year in any conference dates back to 2011 when Adrien Cole was voted the WAC Defensive Player of the Year.
This marks the 11th time in program history the Bulldogs have garnered a defensive superlative award.
