Wow. Impressive honor. Just the notion of a Cal defender being in the mix for a National POW award shows how far the defense has improved in the new regime. It's remarkable.

Remarkable is right. Plus DD has won the conference POW twice already. Our linebackers as a unit must be near the top of the country in sacks and interceptions.

It's awesome to see. When is the last time Cal had a defensive player of the week nationally? Goff got it in 2014.

That is awesome! JK makes plays. You could see that even early last year. Congrats, Jordan!

He was, hands down, the most impactful player as the season wore on last year, and when healthy, this year too. He blows up the offense regularly. Open field tackling is really his only weakness.

Are sacks included in tackles for loss stats? assuming so given "2.5 sacks (-31 yards), 2.5 tackles for loss (-31 yards)" - appreciate the confirm.

I don't know but it sure looks that way in college based on the stats you cite. It would be a really weird coincidence to have the exact same numbers. Plus, it would mean that Jordan was in on three tackles on running plays with losses averaging over 10 yards per play - I don't remember any such thing happening in the game.

Interestingly, I took a quick look on the internet and it would appear that in the NFL they give a player either a TFL or a sack but not both, depending on whether they think the original play call was a pass or a designed QB run. So, if a QB gets stuffed for a 1 yard loss on a QB sneak, the defensive player is credited with a TFL but not a sack. I think I like this method better.

I hope that the outstanding play of Jordan Kunaszyk will lead to more big, strong, tough Central Valley boys to stay home and come to play for Cal.

As expected, Kunaszyk also named the P12 DPOTW.
