WAC, Sun Belt Players of the Week
By Andrea Adelson
The WAC and Sun Belt had a slate of games this past weekend, and each league selected their players of the week on Monday:
Offense: Troy quarterback Corey Robinson. Went 25-of-34 for 324 yards and three touchdowns in a win against FAU.
Defense: Middle Tennessee defensive end Jamari Lattimore. Had seven tackles, a sack, a tackle for loss, a forced fumble, and a quarterback hurry in a 28-27 win against FIU. Lattimore’s sack gave him 11.5 for the year and tied him for the single-season record at Middle Tennessee.
Special Teams: Troy defensive back Sam Sellers. Had five tackles while helping to hold FAU to just 131 yards on nine kickoff and punt returns in the game.
Offense: Hawaii quarterback Bryant Moniz. Went 29-of-43 for 380 yards and four touchdowns and rushed five times for 29 yards and two more scores in a win against UNLV.
Defense: Nevada defensive end Dontay Moch. Made seven tackles, including two for a loss, in a 35-17 win at Louisiana Tech. After going into the locker room tied at 14, Moch helped lead a defense that held the Bulldogs to less than 100 yards of total offense in the second half, giving the Wolf Pack a share of the WAC title.
Special teams: Fresno State kicker Kevin Goessling. Made both of his field goal attempts in a 25-23 win against Illinois on Friday night. His 52-yard field goal in the second quarter was the longest by any WAC player this season. He also hit a 45-yarder late in the first quarter of the game.
