JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Sept. 18, 2015) – Following each game during the 2015 college football season, ETSU head coach Carl Torbush announces his Bowman Jewelers Offensive, Defensive and Special Teams Player of the Game, along with the Effort Play of the Game and the “Look Team” Players of the Week.

Effort Plays of the Game

There was a tie for The Effort Play of the Game as defensive lineman Tremond Ferrell (Washington, Ga.) and wide receiver Chad Pritchard (Elizabethton, Tenn.) were co-recipients of the award. Ferrell hustled 20 yards to track down Charleston Southern’s Nathan Perera for the tackle on a 23-yard catch in the second quarter. Meanwhile, Pritchard made a spectacular 28-yard reception on a 3rd-and-10 play late in the first quarter to keep ETSU’s drive alive. Quarterback Austin Herink (Cleveland, Tenn.) escaped pressure and found Pritchard open on the Charleston Southern sideline as the ETSU wide receiver did an outstanding job of getting a foot inbounds, while maintaining possession of the football.
