    The senior, who played defensive end in high school, moved to middle linebacker in the offseason. He had just come off a stellar 2009 season as starting weak-side 'backer in which he finished third on the team with 75 tackles and four tackles for a loss.

    Those statistics pale in comparison to what White has done this season, as he leads the team in tackles, tackles for a loss, and sacks.

    In MSU's 10-7 win against Florida in Gainesville, Fla., White showed how comfortable he has become playing linebacker under first-year defensive coordinator Manny Diaz.

    White registered 11 tackles, four and a half tackles for a loss, and two and a half sacks and earned Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Week honor, the league announced Monday.
