As his team prepares to take on top-ranked North Alabama this week, Dominique Davenport of Baldwyn, a senior cornerback for Delta State, was named Gulf South Conference Defensive Player of the Week.
Davenport made two interceptions last Thursday to help the Statesmen (6-1) to a 34-20 victory over Arkansas-Monticello.
He needs two more picks to tie for the school career lead.
DSU moved up one spot on Monday to No. 2 in the NCAA Division II rankings. The Statemen visit the Lions Thursday, with a 7 p.m. kickoff on CSS.
