Kennesaw State Owls (12-2)


Kennesaw State freshman LB Armstrong wins Jerry Rice Award

(STATS) - Bryson Armstrong wasn't heavily recruited out of high school, so he jumped at a scholarship offer from Kennesaw State, just 10 minutes down the road from where he grew up.

Armstrong got to stay close to home, and the Owls hit a home run.

Kennesaw State's standout linebacker became the first defensive player to be named the STATS FCS Jerry Rice Award winner on Tuesday, edging Yale running back Zane Dudek by a single point in the voting (347-346) for the nation's best freshman.
