A pair of Mississippi Hound Dogs players were honored as UIFL South Division players of the week on Monday, after the team’s first victory last weekend at home.

Boland completed 12 of 18 passes for 199 yards and seven touchdowns. Bruce scored the game’s first touchdown by returning a blocked kick and finished with nine tackles, a sack and a forced fumble.
The Hound Dogs (1-3) continue a four-game homestand on Friday night with a visit from the Florida Tarpons (2-0).
