Tennessee State University (TSU) football’s Darius Harper Jr. and Kaleb Mosley both took home Ohio Valley Conference Player of the Week awards after their performances in the season finale win over Texas A&M-Commerce (TAMUC).
Harper earned Defensive Player of the Week, while Mosley earned his third Specialist of the Week honor.
Harper, a Nashville native played his final game as a Tiger against TAMUC and saved, arguably, his best performance for last. The senior finished with a career-high five tackles and two interceptions, one of which he returned for a TD, a 20-yard fumble recovery, and a pass breakup.
Harper intercepted a pass on the first play from scrimmage and returned it 44 yards for a score, while his second went for a return of 28 yards. His biggest play of the game came on the final play of the contest as he broke up a would-be game-tying touchdown pass from TAMUC.
Mosley had a bounce-back performance to earn his third Player of the Week award as he was also playing in his final game as a Tiger. Mosley was a perfect 3-of-3 on field goal attempts (47, 36, 25) and had an extra point to finish with 10 points. The dual-threat specialist had a nice day punting the ball, with nine punts for 350 yards. He had a long of 55 and averaged 38.9 yards per punt, with one landing inside the 20-yard line.
TSU finishes their season with a 4-7 record. The Tigers took home five OVC Player of the Week awards during the season.
