The votes have been tallied, and it is now time to announce True To The Cru’s Players of the Week presented by our gold sponsor, and a proud supporter of Crusader athletics, Sacrifice Training.
Offensive Player of the Week: WR K.J. Miller
Miller won a tight race for this week’s honor, after pulling in six passes for a season-high 145 yards, including a 50-yard touchdown reception 47 seconds into the third quarter. He had two touchdowns in the 54-0 victory, bringing his season total to 10 receiving scores.
Defensive Player of the Week: LB Durand Hill
The linebacker was all over for the UMHB defense, and tallied seven total tackles, four of which were solo, a tackle for loss, a pass breakup and an interception that abruptly ended Huntingdon’s second offensive drive of the game. He leads the team in tackles (95) and in pass breakups (6).
Special Teams Player of the Week: KR Matthew Jackson
It was a close race, but Matthew Jackson’s 30-yard kickoff return to open the second half earns him this week’s honor. Reading his blockers well, Jackson took the kick to the UMHB 43-yard line, which marked his longest kickoff return of the season. It set up the Crusader offense for Miller’s 50-yard touchdown two plays later.
Women’s Basketball Player of the Week: Arieona Rosborough
Rosborough opened the season with two strong performances in the span of 24 hours, and was named the ASC’s Co-Player of the Week for her efforts. The sophomore guard led UMHB with a 14-point, seven-rebound stat line in Saturday’s win over Emory, and followed that by scoring 15 points along with eight assists in Sunday’s victory against Lynchburg. She also had a total of seven steals between the two contests.
