Nunnelly Named SoCon Student-Athlete Of The Week

Wednesday, September 12, 2018
Awards keep coming in for University of Tennessee at Chattanooga sophomore receiver Bryce Nunnelly.  He was named the Southern Conference Student-Athlete of the Week for competition held Sept. 5-11, the league office announced today. 

The SoCon Student-Athlete of the Week is given to the league top performer in fall sports with a cumulative 3.3 GPA or higher.  A Mechanical Engineering major, Nunnelly holds a 3.84 grade point average. This is in addition to his National & SoCon Player of the Week honors he garnered on Monday.
 

Nunnelly threw the game-winning 2-point conversation and had 10 catches for 268 yards and two touchdowns in the Moc’s 29-28 overtime win at The Citadel. His 76-yard touchdown in the first quarter tied him for the 17th longest in school history and his second long one of the season.

He had UTC’s most receiving yards in a game since Joel Bradford’s school-record (274) in 2010 and the most catches in a game since Xavier Borishade (10) in 2015. 

UTC is set to continue nonconference play as it travels to Martin, Tennessee, to take on UT Martin on Saturday.
