The CAA has announced its weekly award winners for Week 8 of the 2019 season. 

Earning honors are Towson senior quarterback Tom Flacco, James Madison senior defensive lineman Ron’Dell Carter, James Madison junior punt returner D’Angelo Amos and Maine freshman quarterback Joe Fagnano. 

CAA Football Offensive Player of the Week

Tom Flacco, Sr., QB, Towson (Voorhees, N.J./Eastern)

In just one half of action, Flacco completed 16-of-22 passes for 203 yards and a school-record six touchdowns as Towson rolled over Bucknell, 56-7. 

The senior quarterback threw three TD passes in each of the first two quarters as the Tigers found the end zone on six of their first seven possessions. The six TD passes are the third-most in a game in FCS this season. He also added 26 yards rushing. 

CAA Football Defensive Player of the Week

Ron’Dell Carter, Sr., DL, James Madison (Baltimore, Md./Long Reach)

Carter tied a career-high with 10 tackles and set a new career mark with 6.0 tackles for loss (-31 yards) in JMU’s 38-10 triumph at William & Mary. 

The 6.0 TFL’s are tied for the most by any FCS player this season and were part of 15.0 TFL’s by the JMU defense, which was its most in a game since 2006. The Dukes held W&M to just 194 total yards. Carter ranks 2nd nationally with 15.5 TFL’s for the season. 

CAA Football Special Teams Player of the Week

D’Angelo Amos, Jr., PR, James Madison (Richmond, Va./Meadowbrook)

Amos returned five punts for 125 yards (25.0 ypr) in James Madison’s 38-10 victory at William & Mary. The junior had three punt returns over 20 yards, including a 49-yarder in the first quarter that set up the Dukes’ first touchdown. 

The 125 punt return yards are the 4th-most by any player in FCS this season and 54 more than any player in the CAA. He also added five tackles and an interception defensively. 

CAA Football Rookie of the Week

Joe Fagnano, Fr., QB, Maine (Williamsport, Pa./Williamsport)

In his first collegiate start, Fagnano completed 25-of-37 passes for 445 yards and five touchdowns in Maine’s 59-44 setback at FBS foe Liberty. 

The 445 passing yards were the most by a Maine quarterback since 2009 and he was just the third Black Bear QB to throw for 5 TD’s since 2009. He finished with 469 yards of total offense, which was the most by any CAA player this season.
