UAlbany's James, URI's Parker Share Offensive Player Of The Week Honor

HIGHLIGHTS: Delaware at Rhode Island

CAA Football has announced its weekly award winners for Week 2 of the 2019 season. 

Earning honors are UAlbany junior running back Alex James, Rhode Island senior wide receiver Aaron Parker, Elon senior defensive end Marcus Willoughby, Towson sophomore punter Shane McDonough and James Madison freshman running back Solomon Vanhorse.

CAA Football Co-Offensive Player of the Week

Alex James, Jr., RB, UAlbany (Florence, S.C./Florence)

James rushed for a career-high 229 yards and a touchdown on only 12 carries at UAlbany rolled past Bryant, 45-3. The junior running back broke loose for an 80-yard TD run that gave the Great Danes a 7-0 lead and later had an 83-yard run, which was tied for the 4th-longest in school history. James’ 229 rushing yards are the most by any player in FCS this season.

CAA Football Co-Offensive Player of the Week

Aaron Parker, Sr., WR, Rhode Island (Prince George’s Co., Md./Gwynn Park)

Parker set career-highs with 12 receptions for 227 yards and a TD in Rhode Island’s triple OT setback to Delaware. It was the most catches by a URI player since 1994 and the 5th-most receiving yards in school history. Nine of his 12 grabs went for a first down and his 24-yard TD catch gave the Rams a 19-14 lead in the fourth quarter. The 227 yards are the 2nd-most by any player in FCS in 2019. 

CAA Football Defensive Player of the Week

Marcus Willoughby, Sr., DE, Elon (Durham, N.C./Durham Riverside)

Willoughby contributed a career-high 14 tackles, 2.0 tackles for loss and a sack as Elon defeated The Citadel, 35-28. The senior defensive end’s sack helped stop a Bulldogs’ drive late in the fourth quarter. Elon’s defense limited The Citadel’s triple-option offense to 156 yards rushing, which was its lowest total since facing Clemson in 2017, and 225 yards overall. 

CAA Football Special Teams Player of the Week

Shane McDonough, So., P, Towson (Clearwater, Fla./Clearwater)

McDonough averaged 49.8 yards on four punts in Towson’s 42-3 win over N.C. Central. The sophomore had two punts over 50 yards, including a 61-yarder that was the longest at Towson since 2017. He placed two kicks inside the 20, including one at the 3-yard line. McDonough tops the CAA with a 48.3 punting average. 

CAA Football Rookie of the Week

Solomon Vanhorse, Fr., RB, James Madison (Alpharetta, Ga./Milton)

In just one half of action, Vanhorse rushed for a career-high 86 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries in James Madison’s 44-7 victory over St. Francis. The freshman gave JMU a 7-0 lead with a 2-yard run in the first quarter and found the end zone from 9 yards out in the second quarter. He averaged 6.1 yards per carry.
