Earn NJCAA Honors
The WSFL saw two of its student-athletes earn NJCAA
Football honors following the first week of play in the 2005 season.
Phoenix College's Azaad Muhammad earned the National Offensive Player
of the Week while New Mexico Military's Trent Whitmill was selected
the NJCAA's Defensive Player of the Week.
Muhammad, a 5-8, 180-pound freshman running back made
quite a splash on the collegiate scene. In his first-ever college
game, the Phoenix native ran all over the Phoenix defense. Muhammad
rushed for 231 yards on 24 carries, including one run for 54 yards.
He collected two touchdowns to lead the Bears to a 55-30 win.
Whitmill, a 5-11, 195-pound linebacker led the Broncos
to a 33-14 win over Hardin Simmons University. He collected five
solo tackles and had one tackle assist. Whitmill also completed
three sacks for a total of 25 yards.
