SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Utah State quarterback Jordan Love and University of Utah linebacker Francis Bernard have been awarded Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week honors respectively following the final practice ahead of the 2020 Senior Bowl.

The award is voted on by the position group they compete against in practice. A prestigious award all things considered.

Both Love and Bernard will compete on the North team as they prepare to take on the South team with kick-off scheduled for 12:30 p.m. on NFL Network.

Love and Bernard are joined by fellow in-state athletes Terrell Burgess, Bradlee Anae, and Leki Fotu to participate at the Senior Bowl.

All players from the state of Utah have seemingly impressed NFL scouts this week in Mobile, Alabama, including Bradlee Anae who will need to prove to NFL scouts, coaches, and general managers that his speed and explosiveness off the line of scrimmage is worth its weight in gold.
