LSU linebacker Devin White (40) speaks with LSU head coach Ed Orgeron on the sidelines in the second half of LSU's 30-10 victory over Tennessee, Saturday, November 18, 2017, at The University of Tennessee's Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tenn.

Devin White made history.

LSU's sophomore linebacker was named the Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Week on Monday, becoming the first player in league history to claim a fourth such honor in a single season.

White, a Springhill native, has accumulated 127 tackles this season, putting him sixth all-time in single-season tackles. He's two behind fifth-place Al Richardson (1980) and three behind fourth-place Kevin Minter (2012). The record holder, Bradie James in 2002, has 154.

White landed SEC player of the week honors after wins over Florida, Auburn and Arkansas. His latest award comes after he tied the LSU single-season record with his eighth double-digit tackle game in a win over Texas A&M.

He recorded 13 stops in the 45-21 victory. White added 1.5 tackles for loss, a quarterback hurry and his first career interception.
