Offensive Player of the Week: Kyle King

King broke the program record for completions in a game, with 28, on 39 passing attempts. He threw for 337 yards and four touchdowns without an interception. The senior quarterback moved into third all-time in UMHB history in career passing yards, with 5,156, and is also now tied for second all-time with 64 touchdowns. He needs just four touchdowns to break the program record in that stat category as well. 

He earned 74 percent of the vote. 

Defensive Player of the Week: Trey Belyeu-Witcher

The defensive end stepped up in a big way, leading the Crusaders with 5.0 tackles for loss, and eight total tackles in the victory. He had six solo tackles, and a sack, along with a forced fumble, setting career highs in three stat categories. 

Belyeu-Witcher earned 54 percent of the vote. 

Special Teams Player of the Week: Matthew Jackson

Jackson had one of the game’s biggest plays, returning a punt 95 yards up the sideline for a touchdown. It was an exceptional return, setting new records for a punt return in both the ASC and UMHB record books. The return was Jackson’s third of the year and first collegiate touchdown. 

He picked up 82 percent of the vote.

Volleyball Player of the Week: Alyssa Christiansen

Christiansen was named the ASC’s Defensive Player of the Week, tallying 59 digs in the nine sets over the last two matches. Against Sul Ross State, she had 24 digs, and tied the program record for service aces, with nine. She had six assists and 35 digs in the win over ETBU on Friday. 

Women’s Soccer Player of the Week: Maren Fields

The junior was named the Defensive Player of the Week, helping UMHB to back-to-back road wins over UT-Dallas and Ozarks. She played in all 90 minutes of both matches, and led a defense that allowed just one goal in the two victories. 

Men’s Soccer Player of the Week: Dalton Lloyd

Lloyd earned the ASC’s Co-Defensive Player of the Week honor, with exceptional performances on the road at UT-Dallas and Ozarks. He tallied 10 saves against UTD, which was a season-high, as UMHB shut out the Comets. Lloyd added three saves in the 3-1 win over Ozarks.
