Edwards Gateway Player of the Week     Send a link to a friend

[OCT. 27, 2003]  Illinois State's Sha-Ron Edwards nearly posted his second straight 200-yard rushing game as the Redbirds won 35-25 at Youngstown State. For his efforts he was awarded the Gateway Football Conference Offensive Player of the Week honor by the league office Sunday night.

Edwards finished with 183 yards on 33 carries and two touchdowns to lead the Redbirds.  Edwards' first touchdown of seven yards gave the 'Birds an 18-0 lead in the second quarter, while his second of nine yards held off the Penguin rally. He also added a 64-yard scamper late in the fourth quarter to seal the win.

Edwards and the Redbirds return to action on Saturday, when Illinois State hosts Western Illinois on Saturday at Hancock Stadium at 1:30 p.m.
