FORT WAYNE, Ind. - University of Saint Francis running back Antoin Campbell became the ninth Cougar to earn a Mid-States Football Association Mideast League Player of the Week honor after the sophomore rushed for a season high 143 yards and two touchdowns in the Cougars’ 44-7 win at Lindenwood-Belleville on Saturday afternoon (Nov. 10).
This is the second weekly conference honor for Campbell (Springboro, OH / Springboro H.S.) and pushes the USF total to a school record nine selections for 2012. Campbell became the fifth USF running back to eclipse the 1,000 yards rushing plateau in a season and with 1,093 yards has set a USF regular season record breaking Mike Ledo’s 2003 record of 1,081 yards.
Campbell has the third highest single-game total in the 15-year history of the program behind Ledo, who set the standard in 2003 with 1,371 yards in 13 games, and Daniel Carter, who finished with 1,132 yards rushing in 12 games. Campbell rushed for 100 or more yards six times this season and has done it eight times in his 21 games with USF, which is third on the list.
Campbell and the Cougars play USF’s first home NAIA Football Championship Series game since 2008 when 11 th-ranked Baker University (KS) invades Bishop D’Arcy Stadium on Sat., Nov. 17, at Noon. Tickets are on sale at all Fort Wayne area Penn Station locations for $10 through noon on Friday.
