MONMOUTH, Ill. – A busy day in the backfield Saturday has earned Monmouth’s Lamar Watson (Pembroke Township, Ill./Momence) this week’s Midwest Conference Defensive Performer of the Week honor.
Watson was in the backfield most of the day in Monmouth’s 61-10 win at Cornell to stay unbeaten in the Midwest Conference South Division. The junior defensive lineman recorded 3.5 tackles for loss with 2.5 sacks for six total tackles. With Watson disrupting the passing game, the Scots held the Rams to just five passing yards and 88 total yards of offense.
A public relations major, Watson is the son of Lorre Autman.
