The junior from Pensacola, Fla., finished the season with 1,449 yards rushing in just nine games—the third most in the 50-year history of the SCAC—in helping the Panthers to a 7-2 record, the most wins since football was reinstated in 2007. He also scored 17 touchdowns and caught 17 passes for another 131 yards. For his efforts he was named SCAC Offensive Player of the Year. He also was a two-time selection to the Team-of-the-Week.

At halftime, the college also recognized the 28 student-athletes from the fall sports teams who were named to SCAC All-Conference teams in their respective sports—six women's soccer players, four men's soccer players, two volleyball players, two cross country runners, and 14 football players.

The 19th ranked BSC men's basketball team defeated Huntingdon 93-75 to move to 5-0 on the season.
