The American Southwest Conference recently announced its weekly football awards and Howard Payne Yellow Jackets quarterback Caleb Estes was named ASC Offensive Player of the Week.
Estes, a sophomore making his first start, completed 26 of 33 pass attempts for 318 yards with five touchdowns and no interceptions in the Yellow Jackets' 48-34 season-opening victory at Austin College this past Saturday.
Estes threw for 266 yards and four touchdowns in the first half alone, connecting on 21 of 25 passes. Four HPU receivers caught touchdowns and 10 different receivers caught passes from Estes, who also rushed for 52 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries.
The Yellow Jackets (1-0), who won their season opener for the first time since 2014, visit McMurry (0-1) at 1 p.m. Saturday in the American Southwest Conference opener for both teams.
