Baylor’s Corey Coleman named National Player of the Week

Baylor Bears wide receiver Corey Coleman earned The Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award National Player of the Week honors for his involvment in the team’s record-setting performance in their Week 2 route of Lamar, 66-31.

To go along with his six catches and 182 yards receiving, Coleman set a single-game school record with four touchdown receptions.

Coleman leads the nation in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns.

“We’ve had some great receivers here, and in Houston, also. They’re all different and there are a lot of ways to be great. What makes Corey great is he’s very dynamic with the football,” head coach Art Briles said of the wide receiver’s performance.

“He’s very sudden, very strong, very powerful, and very confident. That’s what separates him.  He’s passionate and he plays with a lot of emotion. With emotions in check, he’s about as good as there is.”

It was a well-deserved honor for Coleman, who also earned Big 12 Offensive Co-Player of the Week honors.

The honorable mentions for The Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award National Player of the Week this past weekend were Ole Miss wide receiver Quincy Adeboyejo, BYU wide receiver Mitchell Jergens, Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield.
