Woods, White receive conference awards

Friday, October 30, 2009

Two of the three players named as 'Hounds of the Week for their performances against Air Force Prep last Friday at Colorado Springs were also given Player of the Week Honors by the Jayhawk Conference.

Running back Justin Woods, a sophomore from Shawnee, was given the Offensive 'Hound of the Week Award for the career-best 227 yards and 2 touchdowns he recorded against the Huskies in Fort Scott 48-28 victory. Woods was named Co-Offensive Player of the Week in the conference. Butler quarterback Ross Dausin, a sophomore from San Antonio, Texas, shares the award after he completed 20 of 25 passes for a season-high 295 yards in a 54-3 rout of Highland.

Dausin was 16 of 20 in the first half for 251 yards and played only two series in the second half. He also threw two touchdown passes.

Greyhound defensive tackle Anthony White, a freshman from Battle Creek, Mich., earned the Defensive 'Hound of the Week Award after making 10 tackles against Prep. Two of those tackles were for a loss, including one sack of AFP's quarterback.

White also shares the conference award as the KJCCC also honored Coffeyville sophomore defensive end John Robles. He was part of an effort that held Dodge City to 96 yards of total offense in a 23-7 victory. The Red Ravens recorded 8 sacks in the contest.

The Special Teams 'Hound of the Week was Manhattan freshman Zach McFall, who is also a receiver from the Greyhounds.

Jayhawk Conference Special Team Co-Players of the Week were Butler's Dontel Walker and Coffeyville's Quintin Patton. Watkins, a sophomore, returned a kickoff 65 yards for a touchdown against Highland. Patton blocked a punt and recovered the ball for a touchdown against Dodge City.
