ASU's Brian Davis named CFPA National Specialist of the Week
JONESBORO, Ark. (AStateRedWolves.com) – Arkansas State senior kicker
Brian Davis (Brentwood, Tenn.) was named a College Football Performance Awards
(CFPA) National Specialist of the Week on Monday after making 4-of-4 field goal
attempts and scoring 13 points in the Red Wolves' game against
Davis, a member of the Lou Groza Award Watch List,
shared the honor with Utah State kicker Nick Diaz, while nine additional FBS
players were named Honorable Mention Specialists of the Week. Davis was
recognized by the CFPA for the second time this season, also earning honorable
mention accolades as a Placekicker of the Week on Sept.
Davis' four made field goals against Missouri were the
most by a Sun Belt Conference player this season, tied the fifth most in league
history and were the third most of his career. Davis, who made multiple field
goals in a game for the 13th time of his career, connected from 44 (his longest
this year), 41, 33 and 21 yards out.
Dating back to last season, he has now made his last 10
field goals in a row to tie the second longest streak in Arkansas State
history. Davis' performance against the Tigers moved him into a tie for the
third most field goals in Sun Belt Conference history as well, upping his career
total to 48.
Davis, A-State's all-time leader for extra points made
(127), is currently ranked second at the school for most points by kicking (271)
and most field goals made (48) in a career. Among all-time Sun Belt Conference
players, he is ranked fourth for points by kicking, third for extra points made
and second for field goal percentage (.827).
Arkansas State, which stands 2-3 overall and 1-0 in Sun
Belt Conference play, returns to action Oct. 12 with a 6 p.m. Homecoming game
against Idaho at Liberty Bank Stadium.
