PLAYERS OF THE WEEK
OFFENSIVE
Dustin Vaughan, West Texas A&M University, SR, QB, Corpus Christi, Texas, Calallan HS
Senior quarterback Dustin Vaughan set the school career passing record in the Buffs' 72-0 win over Central State Saturday. Vaughan went 32 of 40 with no interceptions and a career-high and Lone Star Conference record tying seven touchdowns for 401 yards. He broke the school record on a 35-yard pass late in the first quarter as he surpassed Taylor Harris who had 9,799 yards. Vaughan finished the game with 10,085 career yards. His previous best in touchdowns in a game was six in the season-opener at Western State. He is just three career touchdown passes (89) from tying the school-record of 92 set by Keith Null. He also moved into the top spot in school history in career total yards with 10,244 surpassing Harris.

DEFENSIVE
Marqui Christian, Midwestern State University, SO, S, Spring, Texas, Spring HS
The sophomore sensation for the Mustangs, Christian tallied a season-high 15 tackles in leading Midwestern State to a 43-10 win against Texas A&M-Kingsville. Christian led Midwestern to holding A&M-Kingsville to just 186 yards of total offense, half of the Javelinas average of 373.7 per outing entering the game. Of those 186 (the fewest gained by a Lone Star Conference team this season), TAMUK collected just 47 yards in the second half of the game televised regionally by Comcast SportsNet. The 6-1 sophomore strong safety from Spring, Texas also posted half a tackle for loss and chalked up a pass break up against the Javelinas. Christian's 15 tackles is ninth for a single game in MSU history, and is the most by a Midwestern player since Cody Thompson record 16 in an NCAA playoff game at Northwest Missouri State in on Nov. 25, 2006.

SPECIAL TEAMS
Cameron Frosch, Texas A&M University - Commerce, SR, P, Rowlett, Texas, Rowlett HS
Frosch was a key figure in helping lead A&M-Commerce to the 31-29 victory over Southeastern Oklahoma Saturday. The senior punter had six punts, averaging 48.2 yards per kick with a long of 53 yards. He had two punts inside the 20 as both of those kicks were downed within the five-yard line, pinning the Savage Storm deep. Frosch has been one of the constants for the Lions for four years, ranking fourth in the LSC with a 40.1 punting average in 2013.
