Neal Brown Names Players of the Week

players of the week

Coach Neal Brown spoke to the media on Monday. During the press conference, he named the offensive, defensive and special teams players of the week. He also announced a new award called the blue-collar award and that’s given to someone who works hard behind the scenes and doesn’t necessarily show up on the stat sheet.

You can watch the Neal Brown Press Conference Show in its entirety here:

Offensive Player of the Week – Leddie Brown

Not a tough call, with Leddie getting 123 rushing yards to go with two scores on the ground and one receiving. It was a big day for the Mountaineer rushing attack overall, so it made sense to give it to the running back who led the way.

Offensive Lineman of the Week – Mike Brown

The offensive line play was infinity better when compared to the beginning of the 2019 season. Mike Brown graded out at 87% and was the highest of all Mountaineer linemen.

Defensive Player of the Week – Tony Fields II

The Arizona transfer led the team in tackles and Brown mentioned him “flying around” on defense.

Special Teams Player of the Week – Alonzo Addae

Not only did Addae make plays on special teams but he also had this highlight-reel worthy interception.

Here is a rundown of all of the awards:

Before an off week, the Mountaineers are set to take on Oklahoma State in a game that will have a 3:30 kickoff. It will on either ABC or ESPN.
