Daily Staff Reports email@example.com
James Madison’s Dae’Quan Scott and Taylor Reynolds each earned a Colonial Athletic Association award for their play in JMU’s 38-14 win over Central Connecticut State on Saturday.
Scott was named the Special Teams Player of the Week. Reynolds was named the Rookie of the Week.
Scott’s fifth conference weekly honor comes on the heels of a solid all-purpose performance in JMU’s convincing 38-14 win over Central Connecticut State. The senior finished the season-opener with 197 all-purpose yards, including a 54-yard punt return for a touchdown that represented the first such score for him and the 15th for the Dukes in Bridgeforth Stadium history. Scott would add 15 carries for 120 yards and a reception for 14 yards in the win.
Playing in not only his first collegiate contest but his first game on the defensive side of the ball after making the transition from quarterback to cornerback in the spring, Reynolds racked up six tackles to go with an impressive 51-yard interception return for a touchdown in JMU’s win over the Blue Devils on Saturday. The rookie’s pick-6 was the Dukes’ first since their final game of the 2011 season.
