Samford Cross Country and Football athletes took top conference honors in the last week.
Senior Lauren Blankenship captured her third conference title and was named Female Athlete of the Year for the third time Saturday, Oct. 27, at the Ohio Valley Conference Cross Country Championships. Blankenship ran a time of 17:26.34 at the event—the collegiate record for the course--to earn All-OVC honors and lead the Samford women to a second place finish.
Senior quarterback Jefferson Adcock was named one of the National Football Players of the Week by Don Hansen’s National Weekly Football Gazette on Oct. 31. The OVC also named Adcock Offensive Player of the Week in recognition of his performance in the previous Saturday's game, in which we threw five touchdown passes, a career high and only one short of the school record.
