The award is presented annually to the nation’s best linebacker. Per

White, a junior from Springhill, Louisiana, led the Southeastern Conference in tackles a year ago, registering 133 from his linebacker position. He became the first LSU player to lead the SEC in tackles since the early 1980s.

White set a league record by earning SEC Defensive Player of the Week honors four times in 2017. He also tied the school record for double-digit tackles in a season as he accomplished the feat eight times.

LB Devin White should've won the Dick Butkus Award last year for christ sake he lead the mighty SEC in tackles. But it's cool because not only will he win The Butkus Award this year he will also win the Chuck Bednarik Award and SEC defensive player of the year and being named first team All-American. When White LSU career is over he will be spoken in the same breathe as DL Glenn Dorsey as one of the greatest and most decorated defensive players in the history of LSU and the SEC.
