ASC Football Players of the Week

The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor football team swept American Southwest Conference Player of the Week honors following the Cru’s 62-0 victory over McMurry University on Saturday. Markeith Miller took Offensive Player of the Week, Justis Kelly claimed Defensive Player of the Week honors and John Mowery was voted Special Teams Player of the Week.

Miller, a junior running back from Garland High School, set a new UMHB single-game record with five rushing touchdowns in the victory over the War Hawks. He scored on runs of six, 16, two, five and eight yards in the contest. Miller ran for 69 yards on ten carries despite sitting out most of the second half with the game in hand.

Kelly, a senior linebacker from Lovelady High School, returned a third quarter interception 42 yards for a Cru touchdown and he added a team-high four tackles, three of them solo stops. Kelly led a UMHB defense that held McMurry to just four first downs, nine yards rushing and 70 yards of total offense as the Cru posted its second shutout of the season.

Mowery, a senior kicker from Leander High School, was 8-8 on extra points and he also hit a 29-yard field goal to account for 11 points in the UMHB victory. Mowery has scored a UMHB best 70 total points on the year, hitting 11-12 field goals and connecting on 37-40 extra points this season.

The Cru is now 8-0 overall and 7-0 in ASC play on the season. UMHB will travel to Pineville, Louisiana this Saturday to take on Louisiana College (2-6, 1-6 ASC). That game will kick off at 1:00 PM at Wildcat Stadium on the LC campus.
