Offensive Players Of The Week
Rudy Johnson, Winston-Salem State

After an impressive debut against Virginia University of Lynchburg, Johnson was rewarded with a second consecutive start by WSSU head coach Connell Maynor. He responded with a Kam Smith-type of performance, throwing for two touchdowns and running for two more as Winston-Salem State rolled past 17th-ranked Tuskegee 35-14. Johnson completed 15 of 22 passes for 211 yards.

// Patterson, Johnson C. Smith
Johnson accounted for nearly two-thirds of JCSU’s passing yards on Saturday, catching nine passes in the win over Davidson. Two of those catches went for touchdowns, one for 36 yards and another for 77.

Jordan Anderson, Virginia State
The James Madison transfer came up big in his first home game at Virginia State. Anderson rushed for 121 yards on just thirteen carries. Two of those went for touchdowns, including a 69-yarder as VSU blanked Kentucky State 41-0.

Defensive Players of The Week
Jovontay Williams, Johnson C. Smith

Johnson C. Smith came up with its first win over a Division I opponent in nearly 20 years and defense was a big reason why. The Golden Bulls had a total of 13 sacks in the game, four of which came from the junior from Stone Mountain, GA. Johnson now has 7.5 sacks in just three games.

Shonquez Nelson, St. Aug
St. Aug dominated the line of scrimmage against Stillman, and Nelson was a big part of that. The senior from Lake City, SC had his way on Saturday, racking up three sacks in the 35-7 win.
