Nashville, Tenn. - The Ohio Valley Conference named Tyson Kemp, Male Field Athlete of the Week, for the week of Jan. 11, 2009.
The honor is the conference's first of the 2010 track and field season with Kemp receiving the award, after winning the shot put at the 10th Annual Edward Temple Indoor Classic.
The freshman from Orlando, Fla. tossed a 52"02.75 for first place, a feat for the men's track and field that has not been seen in several seasons at TSU.
The throw is currently the third-best in the OVC. Kemp joined the track and field team after playing in his first season on the football team.
