UNCP running back Brandon McLaurin was named co-offensive player of the week on Oct. 2 by the Independents Collegiate Athletic Association after his 137-yard performance in a 26-20 victory at Chowan on Sept. 29.
McLaurin shared the honor with Humboldt State running back Marcus Cox.
The Cumberland County native ignited the UNCP offense accounting for 219 total yards, spoiling Chowan’s homecoming game festivities.
His 38-yard kickoff return early in the third quarter at Chowan, set up excellent field position for the Braves as they later scored their third touchdown of the contest en route to victory.
McLaurin was also named student-athlete of the week by UNCP’s sports information website.
The Braves’ sports fan site provides statistics, schedules, rosters, event calendars and everything concerning the athletic department at UNCP.
