Tigers’ Spillman Named OVC Newcomer of the Week

Tennessee State wide receiver, JaJuan Spillman, a 5-8 Junior from Louisville, KY, was named Ohio Valley Conference “Newcomer of the Week” for his play against Alabama A&M on 8/30/08.

In his Tennessee State debut, Spillman caught a 65-yard touchdown pass and returned a kickoff 94 yards for a touchdown as the Tigers went on the road to top rival Alabama A&M 34-13 on Saturday. A University of Louisville transfer, Spillman had only four total touches on the night, but netted those two touchdowns and 209 all-purpose yards. In all, he returned three kickoffs for 144 yards. His kick return touchdown put TSU on top for good in the second quarter.
