Bay Alum Byas Named ACC Def. Back of the Week

Durham, NC---Duke safety and Bay alum Jordon Byas is celebrating a rather nice honor this week, his conference naming him the ACC Defensive Back of the Week, thanks to his efforts in Duke's 34-27 win over Wake Saturday.

Byas, number 38 in the video attached, a 6-1, 220 pound redshirt senior who racked up a career-high 11 tackles and his first career interception, helping the Blue Devils' improve to 4-1 overall and 1-0 in the ACC.

He came up particularly big in the fourth quarter, with the score tied at 20-20, recording five of his tackles, including a half sack.

Jordan missed Duke's first three games recovering from knee surgery, but has started Duke's last two games and totaled 17 tackles.

Byas and the Blue Devils host Virginia this Saturday.
