Brandon Hampton Named USCAA Defensive Player Of The Week

Apprentice School junior defensive back Brandon Hampton was named on Tuesday as the United States Collegiate Athletic Association Defensive Player of the Week for the week of September 5.

Hampton, a junior millwright apprentice from Timmonsville, SC, had a team-high 10 tackles including seven solo stops as the Builders dropped an 18-0 decision to Methodist University in the 2015 season opener. 

He helped spearhead a Builders defense that held a high-powered Methodist attack in check to 200 yards per game less than their 2014 average of 470.  His 10 tackles were one off his career-high of 11 set last year against Bluefield College.

The Builders return to action on Saturday with a first-ever matchup at Hartwick College.  Kickoff is at 2 pm in Oneonta, NY.
