Anthony Harris Claims ACC Defensive Back of the Week

Posted: Updated:

Virginia's Anthony Harris has been named the ACC Defensive Back of the Week just days after being named the National Defensive Player of the Week.

Harris made two of the biggest plays of the game Saturday against BYU.

He blocked a punt which set up Virginia's first touchdown in the third quarter. Then, with three minutes to go in the game, and Virginia trailing by four, Harris made an interception which led to Virginia's game winning touchdown.

"I just tried to keep the energy up, keep the spirits up and go out there and do what I can to help my team win.  I came free on the punt and just tried to make a play and I did.  With the interception I just played my assignment and keys and I was in the right spot," said Harris.
