ITTA BENA, MS (MVSUSports.com) - Last week's game at Alabama State didn't net the results the Mississippi Valley State football had hoped for, but what it did broadcast was the capabilities of a host of Delta Devils players -- including wide receiver Julian Stafford and quarterback Dontrinell Scott.
Following their performances last Saturday, the duo has been honored by the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC). Stafford, who finished with 12 catches and a career-high 222 receiving yards, was named SWAC Offensive Player of the Week. Meanwhile, Scott, in his first start of his career at Valley, was selected SWAC Newcomer of the Week after throwing for 147 yards on 12-of-20 passes attempts.
It marked the first weekly honor of the season for a MVSU player.
The Delta Devils will be at home Saturday when they host rival Alcorn State at 4 p.m. at Rice-Totten Stadium. Get your tickets early for just $20 for adults and $15 for children ages 5-17 at the MVSU cashier window. Call 662-254-3313 for more information. Tickets on game day will be $25 for adults and $20 for children ages 5-17.
