COLUMBIA, Ky.-Southeastern University football players Bryan Bell and David Larson were honored by the Mid-South Conference for their efforts in a 44-0 win by the Fire over Edward Waters on Homecoming.
Bell was named Offensive Player of the Week after rushing for 155 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries. The Fairhope, Ala. native averaged 6.5 yards per carry, accounting for more than half of SEU’s total rushing on the day. He also caught a five yards pass.
This marks the second weekly conference honor for the freshman.
Larson was named Special Teams Player of the Week, helping the Fire to a huge field position advantage. His two punts totaled 81 yards, and after putting his first kickoff through the end zone, the sophomore from Lakeview, Mich. started placing the ball inside the five and forced the Tigers to start drives at their own four and 19 yard lines. He also added a 45-yard field goal and four extra points.
Larson has won league special teams player of the week four times in eight opportunities. He has also been a national player of the week.
The Fire are now 5-3 on the season and host Keiser on Saturday at 7 p.m.
