FVSU's Slaughter Grabs Player of the Week Honors

 

After a stellar performance against the Rattlers of Florida A&M University this past weekend, Fort Valley State University wide receiver Christopher Slaughter has been named the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference “Newcomer of the Week.”    In his first game as a Wildcat, the Fort Valley, Georgia native claimed the honor with 10 receptions in Saturday’s match up between the Wildcats and the Rattlers in Tallahassee, Florida.

Slaughter’s 10 catches accounted for 202 yards of FVSU offense.  As a team, the Wildcats had a total of the 401 yards in offense. Slaughter finished the game with two touchdown receptions.  The first was a 73-yard scoring strike from quarterback Antonio Henton for the game’s first score.  The second was a six yard toss from Henton late in the fourth quarter.

In addition to being the game’s leading receiver, Slaughter also returned three punts for 12 yards.  According to the junior, “While I am pleased with the honor from the conference, I would much rather have the win against Florida A&M.”
