Following his performance last weekend against the Western Kentucky University Hilltoppers, Herd football’s own redshirt senior linebacker, Tavante Beckett, was named Conference USA Defensive Player of the Week.

Beckett had two solo tackles and three fumble recoveries for 38-yards, in which tied a school record. On one of of his fumble recoveries, he ran 38 yards for a Marshall touchdown.

“We’re just staying hungry and wanting to be the best in the country,” Beckett said. “That’s the motivation. That’s what gets us going every day. We hadn’t played in a few weeks, so getting back out there today meant a lot and you could tell how hungry we were on defense.”
