NEW ORLEANS, La. (SBC) -ASU defensive back Adrian Hills has been named Sun Belt Conference Defensive Player of the Week.
Hills recorded a career-high two interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, over the final 10 minutes of the Red Wolves' 37-16 fourth-quarter comeback victory against Florida Atlantic. With the score tied 16-16, Hills gave ASU its first lead since the opening quarter and increased the Red Wolves' momentum when he took his first interception 37 yards for a score with 9:23 left in the game.
Two series later for FAU, Hills recorded his second interception at the Owl's 40-yard line and returned it to the 34 to set up ASU's last touchdown that gave it a 21-point cushion with just over seven minutes left in the game.
Hills added a tackle in the game and was part of ASU's defense that limited FAU to 319 total yards, the second fewest allowed by the Red Wolves' this season. Hill joins teammate M.D. Jennings as the only two players in the Sun Belt Conference to record multiple interceptions in a game this season, and he is one of seven players in the league to return a pick for a touchdown.
