OFFENSE – WR JOSH STEWART
Wide Receiver Josh Stewart was responsible for both of UTSA’s scores in Saturday’s win over Rice. On UTSA’s second offensive possession, QB Dalton Sturm found Stewart for a pass that he would take 75 yards to paydirt. At one point during the run after catch, it appeared a Rice defender would make the tackle on Stewart. But the College Station-native put a move to on the defensive back and made his way into the endzone. In the second quarter following a fumble recovery, Sturm and Stewart connected again, this time on a double move in the right corner of the endzone for a 28 yard touchdown pass. On the day, the walk-on would haul in two passes for a career-high 103 yards with two TDs.
For exceptional individual performance, Josh Stewart earns our offensive game ball.
DEFENSE – LB LA’KEL BASS
Linebacker La’Kel Bass had the best performance of his Roadrunner career. The former junior college player recorded a team-high and career-high 12 tackles. While there weren’t many flashy plays by Bass on the night, the Missouri-native played an overall solid game. He was in for a majority of the snaps and made his presence felt by assisting on 10 tackles. The 12 total tackles vs Rice surpasses his previous career-high of eight tackles vs Southern Miss last week.
For exceptional individual performance, La’Kel Bass earns our defensive game ball.
Offense: QB Dalton Sturm
