Johnson City, Tenn. (Sept. 5) - East Tennessee State freshman Tim Turner (Marietta, Ga.) earned Southern Conference Freshman-of-the-Week honors for his efforts in a 37-20 season-opening win at Liberty on September 2.

The 6-1 wide receiver made three catches, all touchdowns, for 145 yards (48.3 yards per catch). His first touchdown was a 58-yard bomb from senior quarterback Todd Wells that gave the Bucs a 7-0 lead just 52 seconds into the game.
