Lafayette, La. (Lafayette HS)
Southern Miss Golden Eagle football player Jasper Faulk has been selected as the Southern Miss Student Athlete of the Week for his performance in the Black and Blue game against Memphis this weekend.
The 5-10 redshirt senior played 65 snaps on defense, graded 88 percent, and had three tackles, an assist and four passes broken up. On special teams, Faulk had three returns on punt for 35 yards.
"He did a good job with all of that rugby punting," Head Coach Jeff Bower said. "They were punting the ball different places. He did a good job of positioning himself to get the ball and a couple of times keeping it from rolling and them getting big punts. I thought he played well in the game." Faulk also was selected as the football team's defensive and special teams player of the week.
