Thomas Named Sun Belt’s Offensive Player of the Week

 

BOONE, N.C. — App State quarterback Zac Thomas was named the Sun Belt Conference Offensive Player of the Week on Monday, and he was also one of eight quarterbacks named a “Star of the Week” by the Manning Award.
 
A junior from Trussville, Ala., Thomas set career highs for passing yards (326) and completions (28 in 34 attempts) while contributing to five touchdowns, including four through the air, in a 48-13 win at Troy.
 
Thomas served as a game captain in his home state and helped App State build a 41-13 lead early in the third quarter by going a perfect 10-for-10 on third-down conversions to that point in the game, which enabled the Mountaineers (11-1, 7-1) to earn the right to host this weekend’s Sun Belt Conference Football Championship Game.
 
Thomas had touchdown passes of 44, 8, 6 and 25 yards. He also rushed for a 5-yard touchdown as App State improved to 21-3 with Thomas as its starting quarterback.
 
It was the second weekly Sun Belt award this season for Thomas, who was also honored after he led the Mountaineers to a road win against Louisiana.
