 DeAngelo Malone, Western Kentucky, Player News


  With the NCAA granting an additional year of eligibility for fall sport student-athletes last year amid the COVID-19 pandemic, questions arose surrounding which seniors would return. At Western Kentucky, DeAngelo Malone was one of the biggest - if not the biggest - question marks. The defensive end and 2019 Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year elected to return shortly after the conclusion of the 2020 season, and has bigger goals in mind for this fall with the Hilltoppers in the early stages of fall camp. "We're very excited for the upcoming season," Malone said Tuesday at the team's media day. "I feel like we've got a lot to prove and I feel like we've got the guys to do it." Like most in his position, Malone is hoping to eventually take the next step and play in the NFL.

He posted productive seasons throughout his career, but wanted to use the offseason to improve his body and return to the dominant force he was in 2019 when he became the first Hilltopper to be named C-USA's Defensive Player of the Year. In 2019, he had 99 total tackles, including 21 for loss and 11.5 sacks, 16 quarterback hurries and a fumble recovery that he returned for a touchdown against Southern Miss. His 21 tackles for loss set the program's FBS era record. - BG Daily News

  For the second consecutive year, Western Kentucky defensive end DeAngelo Malone has been named to the Nagurski Trophy Watch List, the Football Writers Association of America announced Tuesday. It is the second preseason watch list for Malone, who on July 19 was honored by the Bednarik Award, which recognizes the most outstanding defensive player in college football. The Atlanta native is one of five Conference USA players and one of 22 defensive ends on the initial list of 90. Meanwhile, there were no other players from Kentucky schools. Malone enters his fifth season as a Hilltopper after exercising his option for an extra year of eligibility due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Through four campaigns, he has become one of the most accomplished defenders in WKU history.

In 48 career games - 39 of them starts - he has made 255 total tackles (135 solo, 120 assisted) while racking up 42.5 tackles for loss and 25 sacks. Malone's 25th sack Nov. 14, 2020, against Southern Miss set the program's FBS era (since 2009) record, while his 42.5 tackles for loss entering the 2021 season stands only 0.5 behind Andrew Jackson for that record as well. In 2019 he produced 99 tackles - including an FBS era-record 21 for loss - to go along with 11.5 sacks and 16 quarterback hurries. - BG Daily News

  As Marshall's offense starts to watch film of Western Kentucky, there will be one player who stands out during the film session. That player is Western Kentucky defensive end DeAngelo Malone, and he stands out for good reason. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound senior from Atlanta, Georgia, has made a career out of living in the offensive backfield during his time with the Hilltoppers. Malone is a combination of speed and power off the edge that has proven to be a nightmare for the opposition to handle. Such was the case again on Saturday when Malone instantly got the game's defensive tone kicked off with a sack of Middle Tennessee quarterback Asher O'Hara before later blocking a field goal in the Hilltoppers' 20-17 road win over the Blue Raiders.

Malone had the Herd's attention as much as any Western Kentucky player over the last two weeks as they prepared for this week's contest against the Hilltoppers. "We're preparing for him as much anyone," Marshall offensive coordinator Tim Cramsey said. "I think he's a really good player." Last season, Malone won the league's Defensive Player of the Year honors after a statistical year that rivaled many in C-USA history. Malone finished with 21 tackles for loss, including 11 sacks, while notching 99 total tackles on the year. - Charleston Gazette

  While DeAngelo Malone has been solid to start the season (17 tackles, four tackles for loss, one sack and a forced fumble), the Hilltoppers defense has not lived up to the preseason hype so far. Western Kentucky has struggled is against the run. The Hilltoppers have one of the worst rushing defenses in the country, ranking 68th overall and gives up an average of 249 yards per game. In their season-opener against Louisville, the Cardinals rushed for 183 yards and a pair of touchdowns. That was nothing compared to what Liberty did a week later. The Flames had no issues against the Hilltoppers as they rushed for 354 yards and four touchdowns. Liberty quarterback Malik Willis led the attack with 168 yards and three touchdowns. - Daily News Journal

  NOV 25 CONFERENCE USA DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: WKU junior DE Deangelo Malone spearheaded a WKU defense that held Southern Miss to its fewest points at home in six years, as the Hilltoppers took home a 28-10 victory in Hattiesburg. Malone had two tackles for loss, including 1.5 sacks, and seven total tackles on the day. But his biggest play of the game was forcing a fumble on a strip sack, then recovering the fumble and taking it into the end zone for a 5-yard scoop-and-score touchdown in the fourth quarter.

It was WKU's first fumble return for a TD since 2014. Earlier in the game, Malone set the Hilltoppers' single-season record in the program's FBS Era (since 2009) for tackles for loss. With 20 tackles for loss on the season, Malone is only the 11th defender in WKU's 101-season history to have at least that many. With 10.5 sacks, Malone is only the fourth defender in WKU's 101-season history to reach double-digit quarterback takedowns in a single season. - Conference USA Football
