Week Four Sun Belt Conference Football Players of the Week – As selected by the Sun Belt media panel
Offensive Player of the Week
Antonio Andrews (Western Kentucky, Jr., RB)
WKU junior running back Antonio Andrews rushed for a career-high 136 yards, and also racked up a career-best 74 receiving yards in the Hilltoppers’ 42-17 win over Southern Miss on Saturday. Andrews once again led the Hilltoppers in all-purpose yards with 211,
and is currently ranked second in the nation in that category, averaging 201.0 yards per game. He averaged 9.1 yards per rush on 15 carries, including a career-long 36 yard run for a touchdown. He also caught a 25-yard touchdown pass. It was Andrews’ second
straight 100-yard rushing game after finishing with 125 yards in a win at Kentucky.
Defensive Player of the Week
Brynden Trawick (Troy, Sr., DB)
Brynden Trawick led a dominating defensive performance by Troy with 15 tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss and a pass break up in the Trojans 14-7 victory at North Texas; the seven points in the fewest allowed by a Sun Belt Conference team against an FBS team this
season (next closest WKU and MTSU 17 points). The Mean Green converted just 2-of-14 third down attempts, both on the same drive, and were unsuccessful on their lone two trips inside the red zone. Trawick's tackle total is the most by a Trojan this season and
tied with two others for the most in the Sun Belt Conference this year. The seven points allowed is the fewest by Troy since a 44-7 victory over Florida Atlantic in 2010.
Special Team Player of the Week
Will Scott (Troy, Jr., P/K)
In a game where field position was so important, Troy punter Will Scott continued to flip the field punt after punt. The junior booted nine kicks in the game and placed four inside the 20-yard line. Scott averaged 41.7 yards per boot with a long of 50 on the
night. None of his nine punts were returned and neither of his two kickoffs were returned either. He also executed a perfect on-side kick to open the second half, which Troy recovered thanks to Scott's perfect placement on the sky kick. Scott's other two kicks
in the game were both touchbacks, pushing his totals to 12 kicks and no returns.
