CSN National All Stars, 9/22/2008
Weber State quarterback Cameron Higgins, Colgate runningback Jordan Scott, Youngstown State defensive back De’ Angelo Wilson and Elon placekicker Andrew Wilcox are the recipients of College Sporting News national Football Championship Subdivision honors for the week ending September 20th, 2008.
Each of the honorees are listed here with their achievements and their school, position, height, weight, class and hometown.
Cameron Higgins, Weber State, QB, 6-2, 195, So., Hawai’i Kai, Hawai’i
Higgins’ was responsible for all of Weber State’s touchdowns in a 32-27 victory over Sacramento State this week. The Hawai’I Kai native torched the Hornet secondary for 380 yards passing, going 21-for-33 and lobbing four touchdowns of 19, 7, 60 and 31 yards. He would add a 7 yard touchdown run to make him directly responsible for 30 of the Wildcats’ 33 points on the afternoon. The Wildcat quarterback has the best quarterback efficiency rating in the Big Sky (176.5. Behind Higgins’ leadership on offense, the Wildcats are 3-1 for the first time since 2003 and lead the Big Sky conference in scoring offense with 38.75 points per game.
Jordan Scott, Colgate, RB, 5-11, 205, Sr., Hyattsville, MD
With Scott’s 29-carry 239 yard performance this weekend, the Hyattsville, Maryland native rewrote the Patriot League record books in the Raiders’ 34-20 victory over Dartmouth. Scott scored two touchdowns on the day, including the game-tying touchdown late in the third quarter, and was a vital component in Colgate’s two touchdown drives in the 4th quarter where he amasses 83 rushing yards. Scott became the all-time leader in rushing in Patriot League history with 5,015 career rushing yards, and currently is the leading active rusher in all of FCS. He leads the nation with 180.7 rushing yards per game, and has gone over 100 yards rushing in sixteen consecutive games.
De’Angelo Wilson, Youngstown State, CB, 5-10, 195, Sr., Sacramento, CA
Missouri Valley Football Conference battles can be wars, and the Penguins’ win over new conference-mate North Dakota State was just that. But you could have called it Wilson’s war, as his effort on defense and special teams would be the final knockout blow as the Penguins upset the #3-ranked Bison 32-24. Wilson’s had two interceptions in the game. The first came in the first quarter, a 26 yard return which set up a short field for Youngstown State’s first touchdown on the day. His second interception would come in the waning moment of the game as he picked off Bison quarterback Nick Mertens’ pass attempt in the end zone in the final minute to seal the victory for the Penguins. The Sacramento, California native would also block a field goal attempt in the second quarter.
Andrew Wilcox, Elon, PK, 6-2, 231, Sr., Richmond, VA
Last year, Wilcox rode a 5-for-5 performance to knock off nationally-ranked Georgia Southern 36-33 in double overtime. This year the Phoenix didn’t need to go to overtime to beat the Eagles 22-20, but as far as the Richmond, Virginia native is concerned it was déjà vu all over again. Once again, Wilcox went 5-for-5 against Georgia Southern connecting on field goals of 25, 33, 36, and 22 yards in the first three quarters. But it was the fifth field goal on the day on the last play of the game where Wilcox coolly drilled a 34 yard attempt to bring down the Eagles for the second straight year. With one extra point as well, his scoring total would be 16 points on the evening, and Wilcox’ 2.0 field goals per game makes him the national leader in that category.
