Winsor, who was also named to the 2012 USCAA Preseason All-America team by USA College Football, Inc., earned week two's 2012 Defensive Player of the Week honors for his performance in last Saturday's 24-14 win against North Carolina Wesleyan.
Winsor recorded a game-high 12 tackles (5 solo, 7 assisted) and also grabbed a pivitol fourth-quarter interception for the Knights.
Winsor was a key component in Southern Virginia's defense that held the Battling Bishops offense to just one touchdown—N.C. Wesleyan's only other touchdown of the game came on a 60-yard punt return.
"Dakoda made a key interception for us late in the game," said fourth-year Head Coach DeLane Fitzgerald. "He's one of the leaders on our defense and is deserving of the award."
