College Sporting News National All-Stars, 9/28/2009
Quarterbacks Ryan Perrilloux of Jacksonville State and Cameron Higgins of Weber State, cornerback Seth Thomas of McNeese State, and kicker Evan Engwall of Stephen F. Austin are the recipients of College Sporting News national Football Championship Subdivision honors for the week ending Sept. 28.
Each of the honorees are listed here with their achievements and their school, position, height, weight, class and hometown.
Ryan Perrilloux, Jacksonville State, QB, 6-3, 223, Sr., LaPlace, LA
In the return to his home state, Perrilloux accounted for five touchdowns (four passing, one rushing) for the second straight week as Jacksonville State pounded Nicholls State 60-10. He finished the game 14-of-22 for 250 yards and four touchdowns (of 17, 44, 14 and 6 yards) and added 58 rushing yards and a score (38 yard rush) to account for 308 total yards of offense in just three quarters of play (he sat out the fourth quarter). He finished with a passing efficiency of 219.09, the third best total in school history. His 181.55 passing efficiency on the season is No. 1 nationally. He became the first Gamecock to post back-to-back five-touchdown games in school history. Perrilloux accounts for 22.00 points/game for his team, the third best total nationally. Perrilloux has been named OVC Offensive Player of the Week three straight weeks, marking the first time a player has done that since now Dallas Cowboy quarterback Tony Romo did for Eastern Illinois from Oct. 5-19, 2002.
Cameron Higgins, Weber State, QB, 6-2, 210, Jr., Hawai’i Kai, HI
Higgins completed 31-of-47 passes (.660 percent) for 410 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions in Weber State’s 36-29 road win over Portland State. Higgins led the Wildcats on a six-play, 84-yard drive in 55 seconds, hitting Tim Toone for a 38-yard touchdown with 17 seconds remaining on a fourth-and-3 play. Higgins, a candidate for the Walter Payton Award, completed 4-of-7 passes for 75 yards on the game-winning drive.
Seth Thomas, McNeese State, CB, 5-9, 177, So., Orange, TX
Thomas intercepted two passes in a 42-32 loss at Tulane. He ran one back for 39 yards to the Tulane 32. His first pick halted a potential scoring drive and his second one set up a McNeese drive that went to the Tulane 17-yard line before the Cowboys lost the ball on a fumble. Thomas’ brother, Earl, a sophomore safety at Texas, was the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week this week after he had two interceptions in the Longhorns’ victory vs. UTEP on Saturday.
Evan Engwall, Stephen F. Austin, K, 6-0, 170, FR, Derby, KS
The true freshman is the nation’s second-rated kicker and scored a career-high 17 points in the Lumberjacks 65-31 victory over North Dakota. He was perfect 3-for-3 on his field goal tries, connecting from 30, 28 and 29 yards, and he was also a perfect 8-of-8 on extra point attempts.
