My offensive game ball will go to senior wide receiver, Justin McGriff. In a tough 35-7 loss to Weber State University, McGriff was targeted four times and caught three passes for a team-leading 42 yards, including a long reception of 17 yards.
I’ll be handing out two defensive game balls this week. My first game ball will be going to senior linebacker AJ Vongphachanh. Vongphachanh finished the game with a career-high 11 tackles. He also was credited with 1.0 tackle-for-loss and chipped in a forced fumble as well.
My second defensive game ball will be going to graduate senior safety Hunter Reynolds. Reynolds totaled 10 tackles, which included 0.5 tackles-for-loss. He also came up big in pass defense breakup one pass and recording his second interception of the season.
I’ll be handing out two special teams game balls this week. The first one will be going to junior punter Stephen Kotsanlee. Kotsanlee was again busy much of the evening as he boomed kicks 7 times with a long punt of 58-yards, for an average of 45.7 yards per punt landing five inside the 20-yard line. He had two punts returned for a measly 7 yards.
My second special teams game ball is going to junior kick returner Terrell Vaughn. Following a Weber State field goal, Vaughn took the ensuing kickoff, showed off a nifty spin move, and raced 100-yards for a touchdown to give the Aggies their only lead of the game at 7-3.
