NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee State’ s Detorrius Shipley was named an honorable mention for Defensive Lineman of the Week by the College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) on Monday.

In last Saturday’s, 31-6, TSU victory over Austin Peay, Shipley had four solo stops. Three of those were tackles for loss and two were sacks on Governor quarterbacks.

The Tiger defense held APSU to 92 yards of total offense and Shipley’s three tackles behind the line of scrimmage went for negative 20 yards.

The Birmingham, Ala. native has 30 stops this season (17 solo), five tackles for loss and four sacks. The junior also has one pass breakup and two quarterback hurries.

Shipley and the rest of the Tigers will try to improve to 9-3 on the year and 6-2 in OVC play by defeating Murray State on Saturday for Senior Day. Kickoff for the team’s final game of the season is scheduled for 2 p.m. at LP Field.
