The Tyrant Ten: Week 6



1) Tyson Graham Jr: (South Dakota, LB)

Last  Game: Northern Iowa (28-25 Win)

Tyson showed off some sideline to sideline speed, and some great instincts in his second game at Linebacker. While he has the coverage skills of a defensive back, he has plenty of pop as a tackler too. He racked up ten tackles and 2 sacks. It certainly looks like he’ll flourish with the position change.


2) Khalid Abdullah: (James Madison, RB)

Last Game: William & Mary (31-24 Win)

Abdullah had a huge game on the ground, racking up 194 yards and 3 touchdowns on 25 attempts. His legs propelled JMU to another big win. He looked very elusive and proved difficult to bring down.


3) Nick Shafnisky: (Lehigh, QB)

Last Game: Colgate (45-31 Win)

Nick had a big week, in his first back at the helm. He led Lehigh to a solid win, as he threw for 394 yards and 5 touchdowns. Once again, showing off his accuracy and touch on several occasions.



4) Derek Rivers: (Youngstown State, DE)

Last Game: Illinois State (20-6 Win)

Derek continued his streak of beating Offensive Tackles, this week to the tune of 3 sacks. He also had four solo tackles. That brings his total to 7 sacks on the season, and he’s helped to get YSU to their 4-1 record. Their only loss came at the hands of FBS West Virginia.



Division II

5) Cameron Johnson: (Winona State, WR)

Last Game: Upper Iowa (27-13 Win)

Johnson had a solid game, as Winona State knocked off Upper Iowa. He and Senior Quarterback Jack Nelson connected for 148 yards and 2 touchdowns, which was enough to seal the win.


6) Jeff Ziemba: (Shephed, QB)

Last Game: Glenville State (38-7)

Ziemba threw for 334 yards and 3 touchdowns to keep Shepherd undefeated. That gives him 69 career touchdown passes, which makes him the all-time leader at Shepherd. That is a huge milestone, and he’ll just add to those numbers as the season goes on.


7) Scott Middleton: (Harding, DB)

Last Game: Henderson State (35-3 Win)

Harding’s defense had a huge day, forcing six turnovers as they knocked off #5 Henderson State. Middleton added to the day, as he had five tackles and an interception, which he took back for a touchdown. Harding stays undefeated.
