RICHMOND, Va. - James Madison redshirt-senior linebacker Stephon Robertson (Alexandria, Va./Edison) was named Colonial Athletic Association Co-Defensive Player of the Week for his play at William & Mary, the league announced. It is the third time this year that Robertson has garnered the award as he shard this week's award with Towson's Telvion Clark.
Robertson was everywhere in what was a career day for the senior standout. The Buck Buchanan Watch Lister turned in a game-high 15 tackles, including a career-high 5.0 for loss and a sack, to go with a forced fumble and a pass breakup as he paced a Dukes defense that held William & Mary to just 250 yards of total offense on Saturday. Robertson has now recorded double-digit tackles in six of JMU's eight games this season and is tied for seventh in the program annals with 399 for his career.
The Dukes will return to Bridgeforth Stadium for homecoming on Nov. 2nd as they face play Villanova at 2:30 p.m.
