Kyle Hamilton Named Walter Camp Defensive Player of the Week

Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton earned Walter Camp Defensive Player of the Week honors after a dominant performance against Purdue
Publish date:

Notre Dame junior safety Kyle Hamilton was rewarded for his outstanding performance against Purdue with the Walter Camp Defensive Player of the Week honor.

Hamilton racked up 10 tackles, two pass break ups and an interception in the end zone in the victory, and his seven solo stops led the Irish defense. One of Hamilton's biggest plays was a crucial 4th-and-1 stop that set up Notre Dame's first touchdown of the game for the Irish.

A preseason All-American, Hamilton was coming off a performance against Toledo that was arguably this worst as a starter for Notre Dame. In response to that performance Hamilton did was stars - and captains - are supposed to do, and that is bounce back with a brilliant performance, which is exactly what he did against the Boilermakers.

Hamilton now has three interceptions on the season, which is tied for the best mark in the nation through three games.

Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral was named the Offensive Player of the Week.
