SPARTANBURG, S.C. – After rushing for a pair of touchdowns in victory on Saturday, The Citadel quarterback Jaylan Adams was named the Southern Conference Offensive Player of the Week, it was announced by the league office on Monday.

He becomes the first Bulldog to earn the weekly offensive honor since Brandon Rainey won the award on Nov. 12, 2018.

Adams earned the honor after rushing for 98 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Bulldogs 26-7 victory over Furman. He opened the scoring with a 25-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, then added some insurance with a 43-yard run with just over five minutes remaining in the game.
