DRESSER WINN NAMED OVC CO-NEWCOMER OF THE WEEK
November 5, 2017
BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – University of Tennessee at Martin true freshman quarterback Dresser Winn has been named adidas Ohio Valley Conference Co-Newcomer of the Week after a breakout performance against Southeast Missouri.
In just his third collegiate start, Winn posted the best game of his young collegiate career, spearheading an offense which posted a 16-14 victory over Southeast Missouri. In the contest, Winn completed 12-of-23 passes for 224 yards and a touchdown while notching 20 carries for 61 yards. Included in his strong performance were 10 plays which eclipsed 15 yards or more.
A native of Dresden, Tenn., Winn led an offense which tallied 420 yards of total offense – which ranked as the highest total output since the regular season opener. He showed zero signs of jitters late in the fourth quarter. With the team trailing by one point and just 1:52 to play in the contest, Winn moved the Skyhawks down the field by connecting with Londell Lee, Sr. for a 25-yard completion to move the squad into striking position. The drive would later result with a game-winning 22-yard field goal which lifted the Skyhawks to a road victory.
Winn and the Skyhawks will return to action on Saturday, Nov. 11 when hosting No. 3 ranked Jacksonville State. Kickoff from Hardy M. Graham Stadium is scheduled for 2 p.m.
