Tennessee State University defensive end Antonio Harper earned his second Ohio Valley Conference Defensive Player of the Week honor this season as announced by the league office on Sunday. He posted eight tackles in TSU's 18-17 victory at Eastern Illinois.

The redshirt sophomore recorded a sack, a tackle-for-loss and forced a fumble. His sack and forced fumble happened in the second quarter at TSU's nine yard-line, allowing the Tigers to recover the ball and squashing EIU's redzone opportunity.

The weekly OVC accolade is the second for Harper this season. The Memphis native garnered his first career honor after notching nine tackles in TSU's 42-40 victory at No. 19 Tennessee Tech on Oct. 15.

On the season, Harper has 36 tackles in nine games. He leads Tennessee State with 7.5 tackles-for-loss and 4.5 sacks.

Tennessee State plays its final two games of the season at home. Homecoming against UT Martin is slated for a 5 p.m. kickoff at LP Field on Saturday, Nov. 12. For tickets, fans can call the TSU Ticket Office at 615-963-5841.
