RICHMOND, Va. (November 21, 2011) -- CAA Football announced its Player of the Week honorees, Monday, Nov. 21. Four individuals earned honors after showcasing superb efforts in contests played in Week 12 of the 2011 season, including Delaware's Sean Baner and Ricky Tunstall, James Madison's Dae'Quan Scott and New Hampshire's R.J. Harris.

CAA Football Offensive Player of the Week - Dae'Quan Scott, RB, James Madison
Scott nearly eclipsed a James Madison single-game rushing record in the Dukes' 34-17 win on the road over Massachusetts, helping earn his second CAA Football Offensive Player of the Week honor of the season. The sophomore carried the ball a career-high 30 times gaining a career-best 251 yards in the victory. Scott's mark was the 11th 200-yard rushing game in JMU history and was second only to Warren Marshall's 264-yards on the ground in terms of a single-game rushing record for the Dukes.

CAA Football Defensive Player of the Week - Ricky Tunstall, FS, Delaware
Tunstall hauled in two interceptions in Delaware's 26-16 win in The Battle of Blue Saturday and picked up CAA Football Defensive Player of the Week honors. His first INT came in the endzone to hold off a Villanova scoring threat, while his second was returned 54 yards and all but sealed the victory for the Blue Hens. Tunstall, who also made two stops on the day against the Wildcats, hauled in four interceptions over the last two games of 2011 for Delaware.

CAA Football Special Teams Player of the Week - Sean Baner, PK, Delaware
Baner was true on four field goal attempts in the Blue Hens' 26-16 win over Villanova in The Battle of the Blue and picked up CAA Football Special Teams Player of the Week honors. The sophomore logged boots of 26, 34, 40 and 29 in the contest and finished with 14 total points on the day. The 40-yarder helped tie the contest a 16-16 with just under nine minutes to play, and the 20-yard kick put Delaware on top for good with just over two minutes left.

CAA Football Rookie of the Week - R.J. Harris, WR, New Hampshire
Harris provided New Hampshire with two scores in a 30-27 win over Maine Saturday earning him CAA Football Rookie of the Week accolades. The frosh hauled in six passes for 106 total yards and scored on plays of 34 and five yards. His first TD-catch came on a fourth-down play and his second gave the Wildcats their first lead of the day at 23-20 early in the fourth quarter.
