  • Mark Pappas, Morehead State
    OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
    Mark Pappas, Morehead State

    Sophomore (RS) | Quarterback
    Avon Lake, Ohio

    Pappas threw for three touchdowns and ran for another in Morehead State’s season-opening 44-7 nonconference victory against Union (Ky.). Playing less than three full quarters, the redshirt sophomore completed 15-of-21 passes for 236 yards and three touchdowns (213.0 pass efficiency rating). Pappas only rushed once in the contest but that run was a one-yard burst for a touchdown. He led the Eagles on two scoring drives of 90-plus yards in his shortened outing.

  • Vaughn Taylor Jr., Morehead State
    DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
    Vaughn Taylor Jr., Morehead State

    Junior | Defensive End
    Washington, D.C.

    Taylor had six tackles, including 3.5 for a loss, in Morehead State’s 44-7 nonconference win against Union (Ky.). The Eagles leader in tackles for loss in 2018 picked up where he left off, quickly posting 3.5 in the season-opener. He also had a quarterback sack, broke up a pass and was credited with a quarterback hurry. The sack helped keep Union off the scoreboard late in the third quarter, coming on 3rd-and-Goal to deny a score with Union missing a field goal attempt on the next play.
