Texas A&M hosted UL Monroe on Saturday night and took care of business, beating the Warkhawks 48-10. There were three players that stood out and earned the right to be “Players of the Week” on behalf of Armchair All Americans.

Trayveon Williams

After facing No. 2 Clemson and one of the best defensive lines in the country last week, Trayveon Williams will have been eager to add on to his stellar performance from week one. He did not disappoint, carrying the ball 22 times for 128 yards and a touchdown. The score was Williams’ twentieth of his career. He lead the way as the Aggies looked to establish a rushing attack, running the ball early and often. Williams was patient against a strong Warkhawks defensive front, but he capitalized on his early chances, totaling 103 yards on 16 carries in the first half of the game. Williams and the Texas A&M offense will look to get going early again next weekend, as the Aggies will take on No. 1 Alabama in Tuscaloosa.

Kingsley Keke

A big part of the Aggies success so far this season has been their ability to win the battle at the line of scrimmage on defense. Kinglsey Keke was a force to be reckoned with on Saturday night, as the senior ended the game with five tackles, a sack and two tackles for a loss. Despite a slow start for the Aggie defense, including giving up a 29-yard run on the second play of the game, they bounced back and allowed only 57 total yards and no points from the Warhawks in the second half. Keke, along with defensive tackles Daylon Mack and Justin Madubuike, have been dominant up front to start the 2018 campaign. The trio can give any team in the country trouble in the trenches, including Alabama, and it will be interesting to see if they can keep up the pace on Saturday afternoon.

Seth Small

The true freshman kicker could be a big find for the Aggies. It is important for any team to have a kicker that they can trust in big games and in crunch time. The lights were not too bright for the Katy, Texas native on Saturday night. Seth Small was filling in for senior kicker Daniel LaCamera who is out for an extended period of time. He nailed both of his kicks from 40 yards and 36 yards, striking the ball with confidence. LaCamera will be graduating sooner than later. Small could be a dependable foot for the Aggies for the next few years.

Honorable mention:

Just before half, ULM had a field goal attempt that was blocked by Mack with help from Madubuike. The ball fell right into the arms of junior linebacker Tyrel Dodson who took it to the house for a 74-yard touchdown. That play turned the game for good, and the Warhawks did not have a sniff afterwards.
