18_FB_DavisSACPOW
ROCK HILL, S.C. (TheSAC.com) -- The South Atlantic Conference announced its AstroTurf Football Players of the Week for games played Sept. 4 through Sept. 9.  Catawba defensive lineman Cameron Davis was named the Defensive Player of the Week, while Carson-Newman running back Antonio Wimbush was tabbed as the Offensive Player of the Week and Tusculum placekicker Joe Defatta was named Special Teams Player of the Week.
 
Davis, a junior from Douglas, Ga., had an outstanding game as he helped lead the Catawba Indians to a 34-7 win over Winston-Salem State. Davis was a force on defense with 11 total tackles, including six solo tackles and 2.5 sacks. As a unit, the Catawba Indian defense allowed 265 total yards and just 85 yards on the ground, while causing four turnovers. This is Davis’ first Player of the Week accolade this season.
 
Wimbush, a Kingsland, Ga. native, led the Eagles to a 33-29 win over Virginia Union. The junior ran for a career-high 184 yards on 21 carries with three touchdowns. Three of his carries were for 20-plus yards, including a 50-yard run that setup an Eagle touchdown on the opening drive of the game. This is Wimbush’s first Player of the Week honor this season.
 
Defatta, a senior from Franklin, Tenn., was perfect in all of his kick attempts in the Pioneers 61-14 win over Shorter. He went 8-for-8 on extra points and also connected on a 28-yard field goal in the victory. His 11 kicking points ranks him ninth at Tusculum for single-game kicking points and his perfect performance on PATs is tied for fourth all-time at Tusculum. This is Defatta’s first Player of the Week award of the season.
