JACKSONVILLE — Jacksonville State's Malik Feaster and P.J. Wells won ASUN Conference football player-of-the-week honors Monday for their efforts in Saturday's 28-24 homecoming win over Stephen F. Austin.
Feaster, a junior cornerback, was the ASUN's weekly defensive player of the week. He compiled a career-high 11 tackles, forced a fumble that led to a JSU touchdown, and sealed the game with an interception to end SFA's final drive. He also broke up two passes.
Wells, a redshirt freshman receiver, led JSU with four catches for 71 yards, including a key 25-yard catch on third down to keep the game-winning drive alive.
The Gamecocks (3-3) are open this week but will play Oct. 23 at Sam Houston State at 2 p.m.
