SIAC

OFFENSIVE – Kamran Ward, Albany State
Running Back | 5’9 | Freshman | Oscilla, Ga.

Ward led the Golden Rams to a big SIAC win against the Miles Golden Bears in Fairfield, AL. Albany State would win 31-3 on the backs of Wards 112 yards on 13 carries. ASU took control of the game with a solid running attack that allowed them to manage the clock and come away with a road win.

DEFENSIVE – Stephan Pierre, Albany State
Linebacker | Redshirt Sophomore | Tallahassee, FL

Stephan Pierre led a stingy Albany State defense and earned the defensive award for his second consecutive week. The Florida native only allowed three points from the defending SIAC champion, Miles Golden Bears. Pierre accumulated a disruptive 12 tackles, with 11 of them being solo tackles. He also had one tackle for loss. The defense held Miles to just 200 yards of total offense.

SPECIAL TEAMS – Ryan Duff, Tuskegee
Punter | 6’0 | Sophomore | Mobile, Ala.

Duff had a valid argument for Tuskegee's Game MVP, drilling four punts that landed inside the Panther 20-yard line (doubling his previous career-best) including two that went out of bounds inside the 5. He constantly flipped the field to give the offense time to find its footing, especially in the first half.

NEWCOMER – Brendan Jackson, Savannah State
Linebacker | 6’2 | Freshman | Statesboro, Ga.

In his freshman year, Jackson is having a breakout season. The Statesboro, Ga. native had seven tackles, one sack, one tackle for a loss, and a forced fumble in a win against Kentucky State this past week. He leads the team this season in tackles with 21.
