( -- The South Atlantic Conference announced its AstroTurf Football Players of the Week for games played Oct. 15 through Oct. 21.  Catawba claimed two of the three awards as defensive back Jeremy Addison was named the Defensive Player of the Week and return man Kenyatta Greene the Special Teams Player of the Week. Carson-Newman running back Antonio Wimbush was named Offensive Player of the Week,
Addison, a senior from Irmo, S.C., scored the Catawba Indians game-winning touchdown in a 55-37 come-from-behind win over Tusculum. He scooped up a fumble and returned it 16 yards for a TD to give Catawba a 42-37 lead with just four minutes remaining in the game. He also stopped a Pioneer drive earlier in the game with an interception. He finished the day with three tackles, a fumble recovery, an interception and a touchdown. This is Addison’s first Defensive Player of the Week accolade this season.
Greene, a senior from Edgewater,Park, N.J., led the Catawba Indians to a 55-37 win over Tusculum last week. His 71-yard punt return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter gave Catawba its first lead of the game at 35-30 and sparked the Indians come-from-behind victory. It marked the first punt return TD for Catawba since 2002. He also returned three kick-offs for 55 yards, ran for 42 yards and had three receptions for 86 yards and a touchdown for 254 all-purpose yards on the day. This is Greene’s first Player of the Week award of the season.
Wimbush, a junior from Kingsland, Ga., helped lead the Eagles to a 63-10 win over University of Virginia-Lynchburg last week. He put together his third 150-plus yard rushing performance of the season, scampering for 158 yards on nine carries and a touchdown in the win. He averaged 17.6 yards per carry and moved into 12th in Carson-Newman history in career rushing TDs with 28 and 15th in career rushing yards with 2,621.   This is Wimbush’s second Player of the Week honor this season.
