TSU quarterback Michael German has been named the Ohio Valley Conference Offensive Player of the Week.
German completed 27-of-36 passes for a career-high 318 yards and three touchdowns in Tennessee State's 34-14 victory over Austin Peay on Saturday. The 27 completions was also a career-high for the sophomore, while the three touchdown passes equaled his career-best set last season against UT Martin.
German completed a 27-yard pass for a touchdown in the second quarter, a four-yard touchdown pass to begin the fourth quarter and ended the game with a 51-yard strike with 2:12 to play to account for the final margin.
The game was the first played at Hale Stadium on the TSU campus since the 1998 season. German's performance helped TSU to a 3-0 start to the season for the first time since 2008. German currently ranks 23rd nationally in passing efficiency (142.19) and 30th in total offense (236.33 yards/game).
