 Will Ignont, Western Kentucky, Player News


  Will Ignont is back, and he's ready to make an impact on Western Kentucky's defense. The redshirt senior linebacker missed the Hilltoppers' final three games of the 2021 season and spring practices while recovering from a leg injury, but he has returned to action for WKU's fall camp. "It feels amazing. I can't really describe the feeling," Ignont said. "Obviously I love this game. This is my last year of college football, so I'm just really looking to lead and set the example for younger guys and play as hard and as fast as I can." The 6-foot-1, 240-pound Huntsville, Ala., native was productive in his minutes last season and garnered Conference USA Honorable Mention status. He started the team's first 11 games, racking up 53 tackles with 4.5 for loss and 2.5 sacks. He had an interception and fumble recovery to help the Hilltoppers finish second nationally in takeaways in 2021.

Ignont had to sit out the first 11 games of the 2020 season to satisfy transfer rules after coming from Tennessee, where he spent three seasons, but did play in the team's LendingTree Bowl game against Georgia State. He was unable to play in WKU's final three games last season - a victory over Marshall to claim C-USA's East Division crown, the C-USA championship game and the team's Boca Raton Bowl victory over Appalachian State. He had surgery Nov. 30 and sat out during the spring while recovering to be safe, but he was back on the field as the team opened camp July 29. "The rehab process has been great. Jessica (Judd) in the training room and Toryn (Cornell) and those people in the training room, they did a great job really getting me every resource that I needed to get back as fast as possible," Ignont said. "I really feel good. I feel good right now." - BG Daily News
