After going 23-of-28 with three touchdowns in #RV Texas A&M University-Kingvsille's 31-22 season opening victory at Division I's University of the Incarnate Word, senior quarterback Myles Carr collected the Lone Star Conference's first Offensive Player of the Week award of 2016.
Carr becomes the first Javelina to win conference offensive player of the week since Sept. 16, 2013, when Robert Armstrong shared the honor and the first overall player of the week since Sept. 8, 2014 when Anthony Washington garnered LSC Special Teams Player of the Week.
Beginning the game 8-of-8 with two touchdown throws and 20 yards rushing, Carr has now thrown for 10 consecutive scores without tossing an interception dating back to the LSC Playoff Opener at Tarleton State University (Nov. 7, 2015).
Carr finished with 313 yards, surpassing the 300 yard marker for the fifth time in his Javelina career. The Arcadia, California native leads the Javelinas to their home opener this weekend when the Hogs host Simon Fraser University Sept. 10 at 7 p.m. Saturday is Military Appreciation Night and all military personnel will receive free admission.
Josh Wydermyer of Midwestern State University was crowned conference defensive player of the week after leading the Mustangs to a 31-19 win over Truman State University and University of Texas of the Permian Basin's Bailey Giffen was named LSC Special Teams Player of the Week after the Falcons upended Sul Ross State University in their inaugural game.
