Reagan earns SEC OL recognition

Nov. 27, 2017

Center Bruno Reagan has earned a share of Southeastern Conference Offensive Lineman of the Week honors following his superb performance in Vanderbilt's 42-24 victory at Tennessee last Saturday.

Reagan, a redshirt junior from Clarksville, Tenn., registered five knockdowns, including a key block that resulted in Ralph Webb's record-breaking 31st rushing touchdown, to help Vanderbilt notch its second consecutive victory over the Volunteers.

Reagan, who started 15 games at guard before moving to center this year, played every offensive snap for the Commodores. His blocking helped Vanderbilt produce 33 first downs, 246 rushing yards and 529 total yards, a season high for the Commodore offense.

Vanderbilt's offensive display in Knoxville featured remarkable performances from running back Ralph Webb and quarterback Kyle Shurmur. Webb rushed for two touchdowns and 163 yards, which matched his highest single-game rushing total against an SEC team. He finished his Commodore career as the SEC's No. 6 all-time rusher with 4,173 yards. Shurmur tied a single-game high throwing for four touchdowns, and ended the year with a school-record 26 touchdown passes.

Reagan becomes the second Commodore this year to earn SEC Player of the Week honors. Safety LaDarius Wiley was recognized after Vanderbilt's early-season victory over No. 19 Kansas State. A third Commodore, sophomore defensive back Joejuan Williams, earned national defensive player of the week honors from the Maxwell Football Club after the win over Kansas State.

The victory was Vanderbilt's second in its last three appearances in Neyland Stadium. The Commodores have captured four of the last six meetings against Tennessee.
