Averett's Jefferson Earns Spot on National Team of the Week

DANVILLE, Va. — Averett University football senior return specialist Bradley Jefferson became the second Cougar in as many weeks to be selected to the D3football.com Team of the Week on Tuesday. Jefferson also earned his third USA South Conference Special Teams Player of the Week honor this season on Monday.

The kick returner from Tignall, Georgia, Jefferson had three kick returns for a total of 200 yards (one of 93, one of 77 and another of 30) in Averett's 45-17 win over USA South rival Huntingdon College on Saturday. Although Jefferson didn't reach the end zone on any of his three kick returns, Averett scored on the subsequent possessions for the first two. The third one came in the closing minutes and Averett ran out the clock inside the Huntingdon 10-yard line.
