    2011 is now the year of The Middle Linebacker. Often called the heart of the defense, The MLB is the QB on the defensive side of the ball. They have to be versatile and able to blitz, cover, spy, and make that tackle when nobody else can. There are some talented MLB's across the country and who knows maybe the next Patrick Willis is out their waiting to make a name for himself.

    Throughout the year we will spotlight some of the top MLB's in the nation, hopefully see some great plays (please send in any MLB related highlights you have to me). From week to week we will also talk about which MLB had the best performance the week before and when the season is all said and done I'll present the Golden Boot award to the MLB that has kicked the most ass all season long.

    Week 1 Performance of the Week goes too.....​

    MLB #11 of Syracuse University Marquis Spruill

    [​IMG]

    8 Tackles, 2 TFL, 1 INT, 1 TD performance in Syracuse's loss to Wake Forest was by far the best defensive performance in the Big East and the bright spot in a loss to Wake Forest for the Orange. This sophomore showed off his sideline to sideline speed and ability to get to the ball carrier. A great start to the season for this kid and he looks poised for continued success.​
