CONWAY, S.C. -- Junior safety Dominique Davenport (Bonaire, Ga./Warner Robins) was named Big South Conference Choice Hotels Defensive Player of the Week for his effort against Colgate, Sept. 7. He is the first Chanticleer to earn one of the league's weekly honors this season. It is also the first time that Davenport has earned a Big South weekly award in his career.
Davenport set a school record with 20 tackles Sunday against Colgate (breaking the old record by five), with 11 solo shots against the Raiders. He had two drive-ending stops in the game, as well as one tackle-for-loss. His 20 tackles ties for the fourth-most in a single game in Big South history and second-most ever by a defensive back. Davenport’s 11 solo tackles were also a school record for a single game.
The Chanticleers return to action this Saturday, Sept. 13, traveling to West Long Branch, N.J. to take on Monmouth. Kickoff at Kessler Field is scheduled for 1 p.m.
