Offensive Player of the Week
Levi Brown (Troy, Sr., QB)
In just his 15th game as a starter, Levi Brown moved up to fourth on the Troy career passing yardage chart with a school record 469 yards in a 50-26 victory over North Texas. Brown, who did not play in the fourth quarter, broke the 41-year-old school record of 454 yards set by Hall of Fame QB Sim Byrd, who was in attendance on Saturday, in 1968. His mark stood for 467 games. Brown completed 27-of-44 pass attempts and extended his streak without an interception to 184 attempts, covering 19 quarters. Brown completed passes to a season-high 14 different receivers and nine of his completions went for at least 20 yards. The Trojans piled up a season-high 697 yards of total offense and Brown threw for one score and ran for another (the first rushing TD of his career). Brown has now passed for 4,278 yards in his career and is just 1,100 yards behind Omar Haugabook for third on the Troy career list.
Defense Player of the Week
Demario Davis (Arkansas State, So., LB)
Sophomore linebacker Demario Davis continued his impressive play this season with eight tackles, two tackles for loss, two sacks and a forced fumble in Arkansas State's 27-10 victory over FIU. Davis's eight tackles tied the team high and his two sacks were the most by an ASU player this season. Davis was in the backfield for much of the night, helping the ASU defense limit the Golden Panthers to a season-low 10 points and 223 yards of offense that was their second lowest total of the season. His eight stops tied the team high, marking the third time this season he has either led or tied for the team high in tackles. Davis moved into the top-10 in the Sun Belt Conference in tackles (8.0 tpg) this season with his performance.
Special Teams Player of the Week
Daniel Sheffield (Troy, Jr., LB)
A starting linebacker for the Trojans, Sheffield became the first player in school history to block two PAT kicks in the same game. The blocks both came in the second half against North Texas. Sheffield was also credited with two tackles and a QB hurry and was credited with an assist on the Trojans' TFL that resulted in a safety.
