North Carolina sophomore safety Myles Dorn is being recognized for his outstanding individual performance in the team’s 33-10 loss to Notre Dame last weekend.
According to Pro Football Focus, Dorn’s play against the Fighting Irish was one of the best in the country — so much that he was named to the National Team of the Week for defense:

Despite the lopsided box score, Dorn was magnificent in defeat: the 6-foot-2, 210-pound ball hawk finished with nine tackles, two interceptions — the first two of his career — and a pass deflection.
“It’s great just to get it started and rolling,” Dorn said after the game, according to InsideCarolina.com. “I’ve been waiting on it for five games now, so it feels good to have it come today. He stared it down the whole time, so I just trusted my instincts and went to it.”
The Tar Heels (1-5, 0-3 ACC) will look for a chance to break their three-game losing streak when they host Virginia (4-1, 1-0) this Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET.
