USA SOUTH Football Defensive Player of the Week
Eddie Graham, N.C. Wesleyan - The Hudson, Florida junior defensive back/kicker grabbed two interceptions, returning one of them for a touchdown, in a 44-7 victory over USA South rival Greensboro last week to help the Bishops improve to 3-2 overall and 2-0 in the conference.
Graham's 40-yard interception return for a score came in the second quarter and gave the Bishops a 30-0 lead. He also added two solo tackles, one sack and one pass breakup to go along with one field goal and five extra points made as the team's place kicker. This is Graham's second consecutive week winning the USA South Defensive Player of the Week Award as he also won it last week when he helped Wesleyan topple LaGrange 52-35.
Graham was chosen over 4 other conference nominees. He will now lead the Bishops into a rivalry game at Averett University on Saturday at 6:00 PM.
