Mississippi State has three defenders who have amassed enough tackles to find their names among the top 10 in the Southeastern Conference through three games.

Mississippi State sophomore linebacker J.T. Gray was forced into action last fall after linebacker Dezz Harris was lost for the season. Gray went from sideline supporter to special teams standout overnight. Now expected to play each and every week, Gray entered last Saturday night's contest with Southern Miss looking to make big plays. For his efforts, Gray was awarded a pair of "Dog Tags".

Which is good.”
