Sun Belt Players of the Week

11 10 2010

Per SBC release:

Offensive Player of the Week

Corey Robinson (Troy, Fr., QB)
In his first Sun Belt Conference road game, Robinson helped the Trojans return the Palladium trophy to Troy for a fifth consecutive year by completing 26-of-37 pass attempts for 259 yards and three touchdowns and no interceptions against Middle Tennessee. With his usual top target, senior Jerrel Jernigan, limited by an elbow injury, Robinson spread the ball to 12 different receivers in the game as the Trojans piled up 519 yards of total offense against the Blue Raiders. Senior Jason Bruce was his top target, catching seven passes, and another senior, Tebiarus Gill, hauled in two of his TD throws.

Defensive Player of the Week

Kanorris Davis (Troy, So., LB)
In his first collegiate start, Davis provided the spark the Troy defense had been missing, leading the team with nine tackles, including three for losses. His first quarter sack and forced fumble led to the Trojans’ second TD of the game. He harassed preseason SBC player of the year Dwight Dasher all evening as the Trojans held the Blue Raiders to 28 yards rushing and 207 yards of total offense. The Trojans recorded 11 tackles for loss and six sacks against a team that had allowed just one sack in its first four games.

Special Teams Player of the Week

Zach Olen (North Texas, Fr., K)
Olen was perfect on all five of his kicks against Arkansas State, making 4-0f-4 field goals and his only PAT attempt.  His four field goals was only the seventh time in Sun Belt Conference history that a kicker made at least four field goals in a game, and it tied for the third most field goals in a game by a North Texas kicker in school history.  Olen connected on attempts from 37 yards (three times) and 27 yards.  Only five players in the nation have kicked more than Olen’s four field goals in a game this season.  No North Texas kicker has been perfect in at least four attempts since North Texas returned to Div. I-A football in 1995.
