JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A Red Wolf going back to back with a national accolade. Arkansas State defensive end Ronheen Bingham is once again on the PFF College National Team of the Week.
Mr. I Love Hugging QBs filled the stat sheet against ULM: 7 tackles, 3.5 tackles for a loss, and 2 sacks.
Bingham says you can credit open ears for A-State’s improvement on defense.
“Everybody was communicating, from the D-tackles to the D-ends to the linebackers,” Bingham said. “We were making sure the checks, echoing the calls even if it had nothing to do with us, and it just played itself out. We made sure number 3 didn’t get loose, and communication played a big part of that.”
Arkansas State travels to San Marcos Saturday to face Texas State. Kickoff is at 3:00pm, you can watch the game online at ESPN+.
The stakes are simple for A-State.
