ULM junior linebacker Cardia Jackson was named Louisiana Defensive Player of the Week by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association (LSWA) on Monday after recording 17 tackles in the Warhawks game at Tulane this past Saturday.

Jackson had 14 solo stops against the Green Wave tying him for the seventh most all-time in ULM history. The Monroe, La., native had more than twice as many solo tackles and seven more total tackles than anyone else in the game.

An All-Sun Belt selection last season, Jackson leads the Warhawks with 37 tackles this year. He also has a pair of tackles for loss and an interception on the year.

Jackson is the second Warhawk to earn LSWA Defensive Player of the Week honors this season. Redshirt freshman Nate Brown received the distinction following ULM's near upset against Arkansas on Sept. 6.

The Warhawks are off this weekend as they prepare for their Sun Belt opener against in-state rival Louisiana-Lafayette in Malone Stadium on Oct. 4. Tickets for the game can be purchased at the ULM ticket office in Malone Stadium or by calling 318-342-3ULM.
