Via Southeastern Oklahoma State University Athletic Communications
DURANT, Okla. - For the second time in three weeks, Southeastern has had a pair of players earn Great American Conference Player of the Week honors, with Daulton Hatley's huge outing earning him Offensive Player of the Week honors while Colton Humphrey picked up Special Team Player of the Week recognition.
Hatley, a senior from Clovis, N.M., turned in just the third 400-yard passing outing in program history, racking up 423 yards on 26-of-45 passing with five touchdowns. He would find four different players on TD passes and had a pair of receivers top 100 yards each. He posted the first 400-yard passing game since the 2007 season.
Humphrey, a sophomore from Yukon, Okla., made the most of his opportunity as he would scoop up a SWOSU punt which was blocked by Jalen Hughes and return it 35 yards for a touchdown, giving SE an early 14-0 lead in the first quarter. It is the second special teams touchdown the Storm have scored this season.
Hatley and Humphrey join Maalik Hall and Kaleb Whitley who were the defensive and special teams players of the week following the team's week one victory over Arkansas Tech.
Southeastern will now return home to host Southern Nazarene at 6 p.m. on Sept. 24 at Paul Laird Field.
