Dalfrey, Scott Earn Honors from LSWA
BATON ROUGE — Two players who had key roles in LSU’s win over Auburn and a Louisiana-Monroe linebacker who had a big night defensively earned Monday’s Louisiana Sports Writers Association Player of the Week honors for their efforts this past Saturday night.
Scott, a junior from Saline, had his third straight 100-yard game to open season in LSU’s 26-21 win over Auburn. He rushed for 132 yards on 21 attempts to become the first running back in LSU history to go over the 100-yard mark in a game played at Auburn. Scott averaged 6.3 yards per carry against an Auburn defense that was allowing just 53 rushing yards per game going into the contest.
ULM’s Jackson recorded a career-high 17 tackles, including 14 solo stops in ULM’s road contest at Tulane. Jackson’s 14 solo stops is tied for the seventh most in ULM history. The Monroe native also recorded a tackle for loss and had more than twice as many solo tackles as any other player in the game. Jackson leads the Warhawks on the season with 37 tackles (29 solo).
Dalfrey, a senior from Carencro, had the best game of his career as LSU’s punter in the win over Auburn. He punted six times for 290 yards and a 48.3 average, all career highs. In a game that had field position at a premium, he had four punts downed inside the 20-yard line. The punts pinned Auburn on its 1, 11, 13 and 14-yard line during the contest. He also had a career best long punt of 59 yards.
