UMHB FOOTBALL SWEEPS WEEKLY CONFERENCE AWARDS

BELTON, TX (KXXV) -

The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor football team swept this week’s American Southwest Conference Player of the Week honors. The Cru had a trio of players honored for their performances in UMHB’s season-opening 56-0 victory over Ohio Wesleyan on Saturday.

Quarterback Blake Jackson was named ASC Offensive Player of the Week. Jackson, a senior from Dobie High School, threw for a career-high 186 yards and two touchdowns and added a career-high 137 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns on just seven carries. He also had another touchdown run called back due to penalty.

CruBack Jaedon Johnson claimed ASC Defensive Player of the Week honors. Johnson, a junior from San Antonio Southwest High School, posted eight total tackles, five of them solo stops. He also set up two UMHB touchdowns with an interception and a fumble recovery. Johnson keyed a defense that held OWU to 66 passing yards and 226 yards of total offense in the shutout.

Punt returner/wide receiver Bryce Wilkerson took ASC Special Teams Player of the Week. Wilkerson, a junior from Tyler Lee High School, returned a punt 67 yards for a touchdown and averaged 30.9 yards per return on three punt returns. He also added a six-yard touchdown run and caught two passes for nine yards. Wilkerson also had a TD reception nullified by a penalty.

The Cru is 1-0 on the season after posting the first opening game shutout in program history. UMHB will return to action with a 6:00 PM kickoff at Texas Lutheran in Seguin on Saturday. The Bulldogs are 0-1 after falling to East Texas Baptist 44-20 in the season opener.
