Eku Leota and Luke Deal named Iron Men

Auburn football is back to normal, and that includes being named the Iron Men of the Week.

The Iron Men in Week 4 were tight end Luke Deal and Edge player Eku Leota. This is a weekly award given to an offensive and defensive player to recognize their hard work during the offseason.

Leota, who transferred from Northwestern last season, had 23 tackles, 10.0 tackles for loss, 7.0 sacks, six quarterback rushes and a forced fumble.

Leota, alongside fellow senior Derick Hall, is a leader at Auburn’s Edge and will be looking to make an even bigger impact in his second season on The Plains.

Deal is part of a deep and talented tight end room for Auburn. He caught eight receptions for 65 yards and a touchdown and was used more as a tackle than a receiver. Deal should see plenty of action in his junior season as he looks to become more of a receiving threat.
