CHARLOTTE, N.C. Coastal Carolina University football junior Patrick Hall (Richmond, Va./Monacan (Geneva College)) was named Big South Conference Offensive Player of the Week, Nov. 15, the league office announced. This is the second time this season and in his career he has been honored, as he was named to the award previously on Nov. 1.
Hall posted two touchdowns of 37 and seven yards to lead the Chanticleers over Jacksonville. He led all rushers with 157 yards in 19 carries, for an 8.3 average, and set a single-season rushing mark for CCU with 912 yards. With his two scores, Hall became the first running back in Conference history to record two touchdowns in four consecutive games, dating back to the Liberty game Oct. 23.
Coastal Carolina (9-1, 3-0 Big South) plays its final regular season game of the year, Sat., Nov. 20, hosting Big South rival Charleston Southern (5-4, 1-2 Big South) for a 7 p.m. kickoff. CCU won last years meeting in Charleston, 48-14. This years game, which is being televised as part of the Big South Conferences television package, has greater meaning. If Coastal defeats the Buccaneers, the Chanticleers will cap off a perfect season in the Big South and claim the outright league title in just their second year.
