Smith, Joseph SBC Players of the Week
Re: Smith, Joseph SBC Players of the Week
Frantz Joseph (Florida Atlantic, Sr., LB)
Frantz Joseph tallied 15 tackles (7 solo, 8 assists) as well as two for a loss of four yards versus FIU. Joseph closed out his career with 141 tackles in 2008 surpassing the programís all-time single-season mark which he set in 2007 at 131 following 13 games. Joseph, FAUís all-time career tackles leader, recorded double-digit tackles in 11 of the teamís 12 2008 games. He is second in the country in tackles and has led the SBC from beginning to end in total tackles. He went into the FIU game with an injured back-up and the third string back-up called into duty on the strong side. His leadership at MLB was key following the SLB being sidelined in their first defensive series and the replacement having little or no experience at SLB.
