Good: Jacqui Graham, RT

A consistent force for this Blue Raiders team, Jacqui Graham has been unstoppable on the ground and solid in pass protection. He’s a great mover in space and the nimble tackle has shown that by getting out in front of multiple runs this season.

Great: Nicholas Vattiato, QB

The MTSU signal-caller has led a spread attack for the Blue Raiders, dishing it to four different receivers for at least 100 yards so far. The decision-making has been sharp for Nicholas Vattiato and he’s a few throws away from a potential breakout performance.

Grand: Tra Fluellen, S

Coming downhill like a man possessed, Tra Fluellen has been all over the field for MTSU. Fluellen has sound technique and a great foundation for making plays all over the field.

Wonderful: Sam Brumfield, LB

Not only does Sam Brumfield lead the team with 30 tackles, he’s recorded 20 solo stops and has a team-high two sacks. He patrols the middle of the field incredibly well and has shown he can move at a high level from sideline to sideline.
