Howard Payne quarterback Richard Young of Gunter has been named the American Southwest Conference offensive player of the week.


Young, a freshman, was 31-for-41 for 372 passing yards and also rushed for 65 yards as he led the Yellow Jackets in a 47-36 conference victory over East Texas Baptist on Saturday.


Young’s six touchdowns on the day, four throwing and two rushing, are the most touchdowns scored by one man in a single game in the ASC this season.
