Know your UConn Huskies: DE Lindsey Witten

This is the second installement of "Know your UConn Huskies" and this time we want to introduce you to who the USC O Line will be charged with stopping to save Garcia a headache or two.  His name is Lindsey Witten.

Witten is one of the top DE in the nation and most likely will end up in the NFL next year.  He is a All Big East Selection and will participate in the East-West Shrine Game on 1/23/10. He also was on the Chuck Bednarik Watch List in 2009.  So it is just not LOHD who thinks this guy can play.

In 2009 he logged - 41 tackles, 13 TFLs, 11.5 sacks and 2 forced fumbles.  Not too shabby for the 6 foot 5 inch 260 pound end who wears number 9. 

This kid must be accounted for on every down and USC may need a RB to help out depending on the play.  He is what we like to call a "disrupter."  So USC Interim OL Coach Andy Boyd come up with the right strategy to slow this guy down or it could be a long night in the PapaJ Bowl.
