Hansen Named Sun Belt Conference Player of the Week

JONESBORO, Ark. (10/31/16) – Arkansas State sophomore quarterback Justice Hansen was responsible for five touchdowns, including a career-high four passing, and threw for 303 yards against Louisiana-Monroe, leading Arkansas State to a 51-10 win over the Warhawks.

Hansen matched his career high for completions with 21 and did not throw an interception in 36 attempts while connecting on seven passes that went for at least 20 yards.  His four touchdown passes tied the fourth most in school history and the second most by a Sun Belt player this year, while also marking the third time over A-State's last four games he has thrown for multiple scores.

Hansen's 303 passing yards were the second most of his career, and he added 20 yards rushing to finish with 323 yards total offense.  He also scored his first career rushing touchdown, and the five touchdowns he was responsible for tied the most by a Sun Belt player this season.

The award is the second of the season for the Edmond, Okla., native who was also named the SBC Player of the Week on Oct. 10.

The Red Wolves return to the field on Thursday, Nov. 3 for a midweek matchup at Georgia State.  The game is set to begin to begin at 6:30 p.m. (CT) and can be seen on ESPNU and the WatchESPN App.
