 November 6, 2012

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Quez Johnson (East Mississippi CC), Travis Green (Iowa Western CC) and Joe Craig, Jr. (Copiah-Lincoln, Miss.) have been named NJCAA Football Players of the Week for Week 11.


OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Quez Johnson – East Mississippi Community College
Quarterback – Starkville, Miss. – Starkville High School

Despite dropping a heart-breaking 47-46 loss to No. 15 Copiah-Lincoln in the MACJC semifinals, Johnson enjoyed his best performance of his young collegiate career. The freshman completed 40-of-57 passes for a season-high 455 yards and two touchdowns. On the ground, Johnson surpassed the century-mark for the third-consecutive game with 102 yards on 21 carries and two touchdowns. With their season coming to a close, Johnson and the No. 16 Lions must sit back and hope for a bowl invitation next week.


DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK 

Travis Green – Iowa Western Community College
SS – Omaha, Neb. – Omaha North High School

The Reivers secondary claimed its second-straight player of the week award following an outstanding effort by Green. The freshman intercepted three passes in Iowa Western’s 65-0 blowout of North Dakota SCS in the MFC semifinals. Early in the second half, Green took one of his picks 43 yards to pay dirt. In Saturday’s MFC Championship Game, Green and the No. 1 Reivers will face-off against Ellsworth.


SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Joe Craig, Jr. – Copiah-Lincoln Community College, Miss.
Kick Returner – Gaffney, S.C. – Gaffney High School

In one of the most thrilling finishes of the 2012 season, Jackson came up with the game-winning touchdown in the Wolves’ 47-46 MACJC semifinal win over No. 10 East Mississippi. After the Lions took a 46-41 lead with 21 seconds remaining, the sophomore took the ensuing kickoff 90 yards up the right sideline for a touchdown to give the Wolves the victory. Up next for No. 11 Copiah-Lincoln and Craig is a date with No. 6 Mississippi Gulf Coast in the MACJC Championship Game.
