New Hampshire junior safety Evan Horn has been selected as the STATS FCS National Defensive Player of the Week.

Horn recorded a career-high 11 tackles, 2.0 TFL’s, 2.0 sacks and a forced fumble as New Hampshire defeated Maine, 28-10, last Saturday. The junior safety’s forced fumble at the UNH 35-yard line ended a Maine drive in the third quarter and he also helped down a punt at the 1-yard line on special teams. Horn led a Wildcats’ defense that held Maine to season-lows in total yards (313) and points (10).

It was the seventh time this season that CAA Football has received a National Player of the Week award from STATS. 

Villanova junior cornerback Jaquan Amos was honored as Defensive Player of the Week on Sept. 2, Elon senior defensive end Marcus Willoughby was named Defensive Player of the Week on Sept. 9, while Maine senior wide receiver/kick returner Earnest Edwards was selected as the Special Teams Player of the Week on Sept. 23.

New Hampshire freshman linebacker Oleh Manzyk was chosen as the Freshman Player of the Week on Oct. 7, James Madison senior defensive end John Daka was tabbed as Defensive Player of the Week on Oct. 14, and Richmond redshirt freshman kick returner/running back Aaron Dykes was honored as Special Teams Player of the Week on Oct. 28.

In addition to Horn’s award, Villanova junior wide receiver Changa Hodge (Offensive), Elon sophomore kicker Skyler Davis (Special Teams) and William & Mary freshman linebacker Isaiah Jones (Freshman) earned honorable mention for National Player of the Week honors from STATS.
