Tennessee freshman strongside linebacker Tyler Baron may be able to tell the grandchildren some day that he sacked a Heisman Trophy winner.
With 90 seconds remaining in the first half of Tennessee's 31-19 loss to Florida last Saturday inside Neyland Stadium, the 6-foot-5, 255-pounder took down Gators quarterback Kyle Trask for a 6-yard loss. Baron followed his inaugural college sack with somewhat of an impromptu celebration, with his memorable play keeping the Volunteers competitive and facing just a 10-7 deficit.
"Getting my first sack is probably my favorite moment of this year so far," Baron said Tuesday afternoon on a Zoom call.
The former four-star prospect is compiling a surprising amount of moments one year after helping Knox Catholic reach the Division II-AAA playoffs.
