HARRISONBURG, Va. - James Madison's Dae'Quan Scott and Taylor Reynolds were honored as the Colonial Athletic Association's Special Teams Player and Rookie of the Week, respectively, as announced by the league today.
A senior return specialist and running back, Scott's fifth conference weekly honor comes on the heels of a solid all-purpose performance in JMU's convincing 38-14 win over Central Connecticut State. The senior finished the season-opener with 197 all-purpose yards, including a 54-yard punt return for a touchdown that represented the first such score for him and the 15th for the Dukes in Bridgeforth Stadium history. Scott would add 15 carries for 120 yards and a reception for 14 yards in the win.
Playing in not only his first collegiate contest but his first game on the defensive side of the ball after making the transition from quarterback to cornerback in the spring, Reynolds racked up six tackles to go with an impressive 51-yard interception return for a touchdown in JMU's win over the Blue Devils on Saturday. The rookie's pick-6 was the Dukes' first since their final game of the 2011 season.
Joining them on the weekly honors were Towson running back Terrance West (Offensive) and Villanova linebacker Joey Harmon (defensive). Madison heads on the road next week to take on the Mid-American Conference's Akron Zips. Kickoff at InfoCision Stadium is set for 6 p.m. and will be televised on ESPN3.
