Kentel Williams made APSU history two days in a row. During the game against Eastern Kentucky on Saturday, Nov. 12, Williams had 399 all-purpose yards, setting an APSU and conference record as a freshman. This is the most all-purpose yards in one game by any NCAA team this season, from Football Bowl Subdivision to Division III.
On Sunday, Nov. 13, the Ohio Valley Conference released their weekly Players of the Week, and Williams received three honors: Co-Offensive, Co-Specialist and Co-Newcomer of the week. This was the first time in OVC history a player has earned three honors in one performance.
Last week, it was Williams’ teammate, freshman quarterback JaVaughn Craig, who brought home Co-Offensive and C0-Newcomer Player of the Week.
“We always have this talk when it’s just us one-on-one,” Williams said. “We just really feel like we’re going to have to take over as a duo in order for us to be successful on the offensive end. We’re going to do what we have to do to turn this program around.”
