CO-OFFENSIVE

Sed Harris, QB, Jr., East Texas Baptist

East Texas Baptist junior quarterback Sed Harris (Fort Worth, TX / Everman HS) ran for 208 yards and three touchdowns on 21 carries and passed for 72 yards to fuel a 28-20 win on the road against Mississippi College.

His final TD gave the Tigers a 28-13 lead with 4:05 remaining. He is the only player in the ASC this season to go over 200 rushing yards – and has done so twice.

 

R.J. Long, WR, Jr., McMurry

McMurry junior wide receiver R.J. Long (Corpus Christi, TX / Flower Bluff HS) caught 10 passes for 206 yards and two touchdowns to help pace a 63-14 win at home over Texas Lutheran. Long became the first wide receiver in the ASC this season to eclipse 200 yards in a single game. His scores came from 29 and 18 yards out and he hauled in passes for gains of 48, 43 and 38 yards. Long leads the league with 122.3 receiving yards per game.

 

DEFENSIVE

East Texas Baptist senior defensive tackle Evan Beaton (Whitehouse, TX / WHS) had seven tackles, 1.5 sacks, an interception and two pass break-ups to help lead a 28-20 win over the road against Mississippi College. His interception came in the fourth quarter and thwarted a potential game-tying drive. Beaton, who has now earned the league's top weekly defensive honor twice this season, raised his sack total to five on the year.

 

SPECIAL TEAMS

Brandon Young, KR, Jr., Howard Payne

Howard Payne junior kick returner Brandon Young (Burleson, TX / BHS) totaled 241 yards on eight kickoff returns and took one back 99 yards for a touchdown during the third quarter of the Yellow Jackets' road loss to Louisiana College.
