  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families. Some will be hostile and dysfunctional or some will be loving and understanding. Whatever your family looks like this season, it’s always nice to read about ones other than your own. So, […]
  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]

Stewart, Jones earn MAC East Player of the Week honors

The Falcons were also named the Cheez-It National Team of the Week
Drake Harlett

Bowling Green running back Terion Stewart, and cornerback Deshawn Jones Jr. have been named MAC East Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week, respectively. 

Stewart carried the ball 26 times for 138 rushing yards and a touchdown and played an integral part in sapping eight minutes from the clock on the Falcons’ last drive of the game on Saturday against Georgia Tech.  

Jones had four tackles, a 45-yard interception return for a touchdown, and played a key role in holding Georgia Tech’s offense scoreless for almost 40 minutes.  

This is the first Player of the Week award for both players, and the first time a Falcon has been given POTW honors since Odieu Hiliare earned MAC East POTW in last year’s Week 12 victory against Toledo.  

Stewart and Jones were not the just the only Falcons to get some hardware this week.

In fact, everyone got hardware, as the Falcons were named the Cheez-It National Team of the Week, as selected by the All-America Committee of the Football Writers Association of America.

This is Bowling Green’s first national team of the week honor from the FWAA.

Stewart, Jones, and the rest of the Falcons are back in MACtion against Miami (OH) in Oxford on October 7. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m.
