Briscoe leads Sam Houston State domination of Southland awards

(STATS) - Following a thoroughly dominant regular season, Jeremiah Briscoe and Sam Houston State were far and away the biggest winners of the Southland Conference's top honors.

Briscoe began what should be a busy award season for the junior quarterback by being named the Southland's Player of the Year, and the top-ranked Bearkats nearly pulled off a sweep of the conference's postseason honors after their 11-0 campaign.

All but one of the Southland's seven awards went to Sam Houston State, the only FCS team yet to lose after defeating its opponents by an average of 28.3 points - none by fewer than 13. The Bearkats placed six players on the all-conference first-team offense and another three on defense.
