Football Hornets Receive Weekly Honors


MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Alabama State University has four football players receiving weekly honors following ASU’s 49-30 win over Alcorn State this past weekend.
Senior Carlton Jones, Shreveport, La., leads the group of honorees being named the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) Defensive Player of the Week. He was also named to the College Football Performer’s Award (CFPA) List as a defensive lineman.
Jones had eight tackles (2 solo, 6 assists) from his defensive end position. He also had a game-high three tackles behind the line of scrimmage (-20 yards) and two sacks (-15 yards). He had one of the two forced fumbles the ASU defense registered.
Kourtney Berry has been named the SWAC Newcomer of the Week.  The redshirt freshman from Merrillville, Ind., led ASU with 13 tackles (7 solo, 6 assists).  He had a sack (-7 yards), two tackles for lost yardage (-10 yards) and a pass break up. He also recovered a fumble which he returned 30 yards that was turned into a Hornet touchdown. It is his second weekly SWAC honor of the year after being named earlier as the Defensive Player of the Week following the Arkansas-Pine Bluff game.
Another senior, Bobby Wenzig, has been named the SWAC Specialist of the Week.  Wenzig knocked down all seven of his extra points and averaged 43.7 yards per punt on nine punts.  Two of those were downed inside the 20 and his long was 53 yards.
Isaiah Crowell, Columbus, Ga., was named to the CFPA Running Back List following his 19-carry, 133 yard effort against Alcorn State. He also rushed for a career-high four touchdowns.  It was the third time this season he has been named to the List.
