LSC Weekly Release 10-27

Complete Release

Players of the Week
North Offensive
Brandon Noohi, Central Oklahoma, Jr., Quarterback, Oklahoma City, Okla./Mount St. Mary
Junior led the Bronchos to their fifth straight win, accounting for 238 of UCO's 254 total yards and three touchdowns in a 38-33 upset of No. 25 Midwestern State. Noohi completed 21-of-37 passes for 225 yards and a touchdown and also ran for 12 yards and two scores. He gave UCO an early 7-0 lead with a 14-yard TD pass, made it 31-16 in the third quarter with a seven-yard scoring run that was set up by a 45-yard pass and made it 38-27 with a three-yard TD keeper with 6:09 left to play.

North Defensive
Terry Hardeman, Central Oklahoma, Jr., Linebacker, Spencer, Okla./Star Spencer
Junior linebacker was the defensive catalyst for the Bronchos in a 38-33 upset of No. 25-ranked Midwestern State. Hardeman made a career-high 16 tackles, including one for a three-yard loss, scored on a 69-yard interception return and also broke up a pass. He stopped an MSU drive and gave UCO a 21-7 second-quarter lead when he picked off a screen pass and ran it back 69 yards for his first college touchdown. Hardeman had eight tackles in each half for the Bronchos, who limited MSU to 65 yards rushing in 33 attempts.

North Special Teams
Brandon Noohi, Central Oklahoma, Jr., Quarterback, Oklahoma City, Okla./Mount St. Mary
Noohi helped keep Midwestern at bay with his punting in UCO's 38-33 upset of the No. 25-ranked Mustangs, averaging 43.5 yards on eight punts. Six of his eight punts were at least 42 yards and he got off a 48-yarder in the final minutes to get the Bronchos out of trouble and force MSU to start from its own 29 on its final drive of the game.

Co-South Offensive
Charly Martin, West Texas A&M, Sr., wide receiver, Farmington, N.M./Piedra Vista
Martin became the all-time LSC receiving yardage leader with his 147 yard performance at Angelo State. He now has 3,442 career receiving yards, surpassing Central Oklahoma's Dee Dee Carter (3,357). Martin has caught at least one TD pass in eight of the Buffs' nine games this season and has extended his LSC record to 37 TD receptions.

Bernard Scott, Abilene Christian, Sr., Running Back, Vernon, Texas/Wichita Falls
With the second-ranked ACU Wildcats playing without starting quarterback Billy Malone on Saturday, Bernard Scott was a one-man wrecking crew as he topped the 200-yard rushing mark for the second straight week in ACU's 37-17 win over No. 16 Tarleton State. Scott -- who last week had 268 yards rushing and 409 all-purpose yards in ACU's 52-35 win at West Texas A&M -- put up another 259 rushing yards and scored three more touchdowns in Saturday's win over the Texans. Just like the week before, Scott did most of his damage in the second half as he had 17 carries for 166 yards and two scores in the game's final 30 minutes. He scored on a 22-yard first-quarter run and then had third-quarter touchdown runs of 4 and 30 yards. His 30-yarder came on the first play after a sack and fumble by TSU quarterback Scott Grantham and put ACU ahead 30-10 with 3:03 left in the third quarter. Scott now has 700 all-purpose yards and six touchdowns in the last two games.

South Defensive
Fred Thompson, Abilene Christian, So., Linebacker, Houston, Texas/St. Pius X
Thompson has played some of the best football of his ACU career the last few weeks, and Saturday was no exception as he helped the Wildcat defense post one of its best efforts of the season in No. 2 ACU's 37-17 win over No. 16 Tarleton State. Thompson had six tackles, two of ACU's three sacks, one its six pass breakups and two of its eight quarterback hurries. The Wildcats held the league's second-ranked rushing offense (averaging 204 yards per game entering the contest) to just 75 yards on the ground and 19 points below its season average.

South Special Teams
Jabir Perkins, Texas A&M-Kingsville, Sr., Safety, Dallas, Texas/Irving Nimitz
Perkins is putting together the best kick returning season in school history. Earlier in the season he set a school record for kick off returns yards in a game and had a 91-yard touchdown against West Texas A&M. Since that time, opponents have avoided kicking to him, but ENMU made the mistake in the first quarter on Saturday and he made them pay with an 84-yard touchdown. He is one of just three players in school history with two kick return touchdowns in a season and is averaging a school record 40.3 yards per return. He also intercepted a pass setting up another touchdown for the Javelinas.
