In APSU’s 69-13 win over Morehead State, JaVaughn Craig recorded four touchdowns on nine carries, while tallying 118 yards off of eight completions. Craig’s efforts awarded him Ohio Valley Conference Co-Offensive Player of the Week. The sophomore quarterback shares the award with UT Martin’s Troy Cook.
Craig tallied 155 total yards in the win while hitting the end zone for the most times by a single player in one game since Chris Fletcher in 2066. The total 10 touchdowns by APSU is the most in 22 years by an OVC program in a single game.
Craig became a starter for APSU midway through the 2016 season. The 155 total yards recorded by Craig was his most since his 223 yard game in 2016 against Southeast Missouri.
“For me, player of the week is great, but I want to people to think of me for how good of a person and a Christian I am then as a player,” said Craig.
For Craig, his coach certainly sees him that way.
Craig celebrated the win by getting baptized Sunday Morning at Lifepoint Church.
APSU returns to action Saturday, Sept. 23 at Murray State (1-2) for the Battle of the Border.
