Hall Named FCS and OVC Specialist of the Week

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Redshirt senior Darion Hall was named Sports Network and Ohio Valley Conference Specialist of the Week for his role in Tennessee State’s last game.

Against Eastern Kentucky, Hall tied a school record with a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown for the Tigers’ first score.

The Naples, Fla. native also had four other run-backs for 174 return yards. The tailback tallied 81 yards on the ground, too, to finish with a game-high 262 total yards.

Hall has averaged 29.1 yards per kick return this season and is the first Tiger to win OVC Specialist of the Week this year.

The redshirt senior is also the first TSU player to win an FCS weekly award this season.
