SDSU Newcomer Earns Honor

SDSU Newcomer Earns Honor

A first college start has earned a Jackrabbit football player his first MVC honor. South Dakota State University linebacker Dallas Brown has been honored as both Missouri Valley Football Conference Defensive Player and Newcomer of the Week for his performance in the Jackrabbits’ 34-26 home win over Southeastern Louisiana on Saturday.

 

In his first career start, the Tucson, Ariz., native intercepted a pair of passes and was credited with six tackles as the sixth-ranked Jackrabbits rallied to stay undefeated at 3-0. Both of Brown’s interceptions came on Southeastern’s last two offensive possessions; the first interception he returned 52 yards for a touchdown with 2:25 to play. The second interception also came near midfield with just over a minute remaining, sealing the Jackrabbit victory.

 

Brown’s interceptions were two of the six turnovers — four interceptions and two fumbles — the Jackrabbits forced in the game.

South Dakota State closes out the non-conference portion of its schedule Sept. 21 at Nebraska. Kickoff is slated for 2:30 p.m. at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Neb.
