BELTON – University of Mary Hardin-Baylor football players Teidrick Smith and Jon Isom have been honored by the American Southwest Conference for their performances in the Cru’s 56-9 victory over Sul Ross State on Saturday. Smith has been named ASC Defensive Player of the Week and Isom was named ASC Special Teams Player of the Week.
Smith, a sophomore defensive end from Hallettsville High School, had 1.5 of the Cru’s eight sacks in the win over the Lobos. He also forced and recovered a fumble when he batted away a Sul Ross option pitch. Smith’s play helped spark a defense that held the Lobos to just 44 rushing yards and 161 yards of total offensive in the game.
Isom, a junior defensive end from Klein Forest High School, blocked a Sul Ross State punt and tipped another. He added two tackles for loss and a safety for UMHB in the game.
The Cru is 5-0 overall and has a 1-0 record in ASC play following the win over Sul Ross. UMHB will return to action with a 1:00 PM kickoff against Louisiana College this Saturday at Crusader Stadium.
