OFFENSIVE STAR OF THE GAME

Damion Hunter (USMA)
WR/KR No. 7 Damion Hunter


Damion Hunter put Army in a position to win the game late when, after Tulane had taken a 17-16 lead, he returned the following kickoff 46 yard to the Tulane 41. Hunter also had all three of Army's receptions on the day for 25 yards.

DEFENSIVE STAR OF THE GAME

Stephen Anderson (USMA)
LB No. 50 Stephen Anderson


Linebacker Stephen Anderson continues to impress as he gets used to this new double eagle flex defense. On Saturday he led the Black Knights in tackles with eight, six of them were solos. He also had a tackle for a loss.


UNSUNG HERO OF THE GAME

Steven Erzinger (USMA)
LB No. 9 Steven Erzinger


Erzinger, a sophomore from Texas, had four tackles and one big sack for eight yards that snuffed a Tulane drive in the first half. With talented young players like Erzinger the future looks bright for Army football.
