Stevens, Harmon, Vaughan & Jones Selected CAA Football POTW
CAA Football's Week 11 Player of the Week honorees are featured below. A link to each school's release will be added to each player's name over the course of the week as they become available.
Offensive Player of
the Week: Rickey Stevens, Junior, RB, Maine
Stevens sparked Maine's explosive offensive attack with his eight-yard first-quarter score on Saturday. The junior would go on to rack up 179 rushing yards on 21 carries to help the Black Bears best Georgia State in their home-finale.
Defensive Player of
the Week: Joey Harmon, Sophomore, LB, Villanova
Harmon turned in six tackles and 2.5 sacks for a loss of seven yards to send the Wildcats past James Madison for their second win over a ranked opponent this season. Two of the sophomore's sacks were secured in the end zone for a pair of safeties to help keep Villanova very much a part of the playoff picture heading into next week's regular-season finale.
Special Teams Player
of the Week: Antonio Vaughan, Sophomore, PR, Old Dominion
Vaughan picked up 75 yards on three punt returns, including a 70-yard touchdown run in Old Dominion's 41-31 win over William and Mary. The sophomore's score marked the longest punt return in program history and the Monarchs' first-ever returned for a touchdown. He also finished with three receptions for 29 yards and a touchdown as ODU moved to 9-1 on the season and 6-1 in CAA play.
Rookie of the Week: Nigel Jones, Freshman, RB, Maine
Jones offered a nice complement to Stevens' offensive output with a pair of touchdowns of his own on Saturday, rushing 13 times for 76 yards and a score to go with a 76-yard touchdown on a catch-and-run play as Maine rolled to its second win in three games.
