RICHMOND, Va. - Redshirt junior placekicker Cameron Starke (Halifax, Va./Halifax County (West Virginia))and redshirt-freshman defensive lineman Alex Mosley (Highland Springs, Va./Highland Springs) have earned CAA Football Special Teams and Rookie of the Week honors, respectively, the league announced Monday.
Starke converted a career-long 49-yard kick as part of a two field-goal first-half effort for the Dukes, who topped Towson, 13-10, to improve to 8-0 all-time against the Tigers in league play. The junior averaged 63.2 yards on his kickoffs as well, including two that resulted in touchbacks. With his pair of field goals on Saturday, Starke is now 7-for-7 in splitting the uprights at Bridgeforth Stadium.
Mosley made the most of his second career start, turning in a career-high seven tackles to help JMU escape a scare from Towson in Saturday's nationally-televised showdown. The newcomer, who also forced a fumble in head coach Mickey Matthews' 100th career win, held the Tigers to just 17 yards gained in those seven plays in which he recorded a stop.
No. 5 JMU plays its second of three home games in October Saturday, Oct. 13 with a 3:30 p.m. CAA game against William and Mary, which will be televised regionally on Comcast SportsNet.
