DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Raymond Johnson III, Georgia Southern (Junior, DE, Sumter, S.C.)
Georgia Southern junior defensive end Raymond Johnson III had three tackles, including half a tackle for loss, in Georgia Southern's double-overtime win at South Alabama on Thursday night, but he saved his best for the extra frames. Johnson III blocked the potential game-winning field goal in the back half of the first overtime to force a second extra stanza, and then pounced on a fumble in the second overtime, which set up the game-winner from Tyler Bass.
