CAA POTW Awards 2017
CAA Football Offensive Player of the Week
Cardon Johnson, Sr., RB, James Madison (Newport News, Va./Warwick)

Johnson rushed for a career-high 265 yards and two touchdowns on just 17 carries (15.6 ypc) in James Madison’s 34-14 victory at East Carolina. In his first game back from an Achilles injury, the senior broke scoring runs of 85 and 80 yards as the Dukes beat an FBS foe for the second time in three years. Johnson’s rushing total was the second-highest in school history.

CAA Football Defensive Player of the Week
Kyre Hawkins, Sr., LB, James Madison (Baltimore, Md./Dunbar)

Hawkins recorded a team-best 13 tackles, including one for loss, in JMU’s 34-14 triumph at East Carolina. The senior linebacker headlined a Dukes’ defense that held the Pirates to just 362 total yards, forced four turnovers and limited ECU to one touchdown until a score in the final minute.

RE: CAA POTW Awards 2017
I wanted to take a sec and give a shout out to Jordan Brown. I thought he played a terrific game. Was all over the field. Though we then pissed away the good field position, his early INT was a lift to the team.

Most of all, he directed the defense. Almost like how a pitcher points to his catcher whenever he throws a no-hitter, when we go 59+ minutes while giving up one TD (on a very short field at that), then the director of that effort on the field deserves some credit.

Well done, Jordan.

Agreed. He played a fantastic game. He made a lot of tackles on runs either in the backfield or at the line, but was also back for a bunch of tackles in coverage and came up with some great plays deep.

Agreed. Have felt that way since the SMU game. No doubt he has benefitted from football discussions over the years with his brother (former Maryland starting QB CJ Brown). Our safeties are pretty bad ass.
