FOOTBALL PLAYERS OF THE WEEK

(Games of November 6, 2010)

 

OFFENSIVE

Quincy Daniels, RB, Sr., Mary Hardin-Baylor

Mary Hardin-Baylor senior running back Quincy Daniels (Belton, TX / BHS) ran for 118 yards and three touchdowns on 18 carries – all in the first 21 minutes – to fuel a 76-12 road win over Sul Ross State that clinched at least a share of the ASC title and the league's automatic berth into the NCAA playoffs. Daniels, who did not play after the middle of the second quarter, also added a 47-yard kickoff for the nationally-ranked Cru. He is just 25 yards shy of tying the ASC's career rushing record of 3,672.

 

CO-DEFENSIVE

Will Morris, FS, Jr., McMurry

McMurry junior free safety Will Morris (Katy, TX / New Mexico State) had 10 tackles – five solo – a forced fumble and returned an interception 74 yards for a touchdown during a 35-32 loss to Louisiana College. Morris's touchdown, which was the first of his career, gave McMurry a 32-28 lead with 7:55 left to play.

 

Brandon Thomas, S, Fr., Texas Lutheran

Texas Lutheran freshman safety Brandon Thomas (Houston, TX / Sterling HS) had 13 tackles – including nine solo stops – two pass break-ups and one tackles for a loss to fuel a 42-23 win over Mississippi College. Thomas spearheaded a unit that held the Choctaws to just three first-half points that came with 25 seconds to play before halftime.

 

SPECIAL TEAMS

Geoff Myles, PR/KR, So., Mary Hardin-Baylor

Mary Hardin-Baylor sophomore return man Geoff Myles (San Antonio, TX / Stevens HS) returned four punts for 171 yards, with a long of 64 to help the Cru to a 76-12 road win over Sul Ross State that clinched at least a share of the ASC title and the league's automatic berth into the NCAA playoffs. Myles, who takes the conference's top weekly special teams award for the third time this season, returned each punt inside the Lobos' 25-yard line and all led to touchdowns. His punt return yardage total was the highest in a single game in the ASC this season by nearly 100 yards.
