Calhoun City native M.D. Jennings, a senior safety on the Arkansas State football team, was named the Sun Belt Conference Defensive Player of the Week after his strong showing against No. 22 Auburn last Saturday.
Jennings recorded a team-high 11 tackles that included a career-best 1 1/2 tackles for loss. Jennings, who recorded ASU’s only sack of Tigers quarterback Cameron Newton, was also responsible for forcing one fumble and recovering another.
He posted double-figure tackles in a game for the fourth time of his career and his 11 stops were just two short of his career-high 13. Jennings’ sack was the third of his career.
