Evangel's sophomore running back, Jordan Murphy, is leading his team in rushing yards as well as to victories this season. Against Green Oaks in week six, Murphy rushed for 139 yards and three touchdowns at the Eagles beat the Giants, 63-12.
First year head coach Byron Dawson has watched his young starter evolve in his role.
"Jordan is a young man that's progressed through the season. He's gotten better each week," said Dawson. "That's something that we've really been focusing on, getting our running game, take some pressure of our quarterback and Jordan's really stepped up to the plate and he's done a great job."
