    PISCATAWAY, N.J. (October 14, 2012) – Rutgers senior linebacker Khaseem Greene (Elizabeth, N.J.) was named the Walter Camp Football Foundation National Defensive Player of the Week, presented by Generation UCAN. This is the ninth year that the Walter Camp FootballFoundation will honor one offensive and one defensive player as its national Football Bowl Subdivision player of the week during the regular season. Recipients are selected by a panel of national media members and administered by the Foundation.

    Greene was all over the field in Rutgers’ 23-15 victory over Syracuse. The 2011 Co-BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Year totaled 14 tackles, 1.5 sacks, forced three fumbles and had an interception against the Orange. Greene’s stellar performance has helped RU to a 6-0 record and 3-0 mark in the BIG EAST. Rutgers is 6-0 for the first time since 2006.

    Greene is the third player in school history to earn the National Player of the Week honor from the Walter Camp Football Foundation. Ray Rice was the Walter Camp Offensive Player of the Week on September 3, 2006 and defensive tackle Ramel Meekins was the National Defensive Player of the Week on October 15, 2006.
