Hoskins named league, national player of the week

PIKEVILLE, Ky. – He is quickly establishing himself as one of the nation’s premier quarterbacks. The nation is certainly beginning to take note of his talents.

Junior quarterback Trevor Hoskins was named the Mid-South Conference Offensive Player of the Week Monday morning, and later that afternoon, earned the national honor from the NAIA.

It’s the second time this season Hoskins has been named the league’s top offensive player and the second time in his career he has been named national player of the week.

Hoskins is honored the same day as his defensive teammate Demitri Travis, who was named defensive player of the week by the MSC and NAIA as well.

Hoskins tied a single-game program records with six touchdowns passes to earn MSC Offensive Player of the Week.

The six touchdowns is also tied for the most in a game by an NAIA player this season.

The Middlesboro, Ky., junior quarterback completed 36-of-51 passes for 481 yards to help the Bears beat Faulkner University 51-34. In addition to matching the program’s touchdown mark, Hoskins broke his own school record for completions in a game.

His yardage total, while impressive, is only third on the school’s single-game mark. It stands behind two of his own performances from last season.

During Saturday’s win, Hoskins became the program’s all-time leader in passing yards with 4,168. He set the mark while playing in just 14 games.

This season, Hoskins ranks second in the Mid-South Conference in total offense (342.3 yards per game) and passing (340.5). His 15 touchdown passes leads the conference.

He ranks second nationally in all three categories as well.
