Brown Claims SAC Football Defensive Player of the Week Honor
ROCK HILL, SC -- Catawba junior linebacker Joe Brown (New Bern, NC/New Bern HS) has been named the South Atlantic Conference Defensive Players of the Week for the week ending September 15. Also honored was Newberry running back Alex Haynes on offense and Tusculum punter John Gregory on special teams.
Brown led a defense that limited Fayetteville State University to 135 yards, 10 first downs and no offensive points in a 46-7 home win. He made seven tackles with two for losses, including a quarterback sack. He also caused a fumble, recovered a fumble and recorded a QB hurry. Thanks to the efforts of Brown and his teammates, the Catawba defense helped the offense overcome six turnovers by forcing four of its own and holding Fayetteville State three times on downs.
Haynes accounted for 200 yards of total offense while also tallying three touchdowns in a win over North Greenville. He rushed 22 times for 150 yards and two scores. Haynes also caught four passes for 77 yards and one TD. Gregory averaged 48.8 yards on his four punts in Tusculum's 69-0 home win over Saint Paul's.
The SAC Football Players of the Week are selected by a vote of the league's sports information directors.
