Two Sea Gulls named ACFC Players of the Week
SALISBURY, Md. - The Salisbury University football team has even more success to celebrate this week, as two of its players received ACFC (Atlantic Central Football Conference) Player of the Week honors on Monday. Junior quarterback Sean Kelly (Fallston, Md.) earned the title of Co-Offensive Player of the Week, and senior defensive back Brandon Hudson (Delmar, Md.) was named Defensive Player of the Week. The accolades come from both players' performances in Salisbury's victory over St. John Fisher College, 38-20, on Saturday.
Kelly was forced to step up after an early 1st quarter injury took senior quarterback Bobby Sheahin (Brookeville, Md.) out of the game. Kelly rose to the occasion and had a career day; he threw 10 completions for 144 yards, ran in a 20-yard touchdown, and connected a 48-yard pass to D.J. Nelson (Mullica Hill, N.J.) for another Sea Gull score. Hudson also played a key role in the win, intercepting three St. John Fisher passes and breaking up two plays. One of those interceptions couldn't have come at a better time. With Salisbury down 6-3 with 18 seconds left in the first half, Hudson intercepted a pass in Salisbury's red zone to prevent the Cardinals from scoring. He had five tackles on the day, four of them solo. The victory over St. John Fisher brings Salisbury's record to 2-2.
The Sea Gulls will be at home this Saturday for the second consecutive week, as they host The Apprentice School on SU's Family Weekend. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m.
