    Good: Amad Anderson/Dante Wright, WRs

    The combination of Amad Anderson and Dante Wright has started to pay off in multiple ways this season. To open the year, specifically against Akron, it was Wright who was E.J. Warner’s preferred target, while lately, it’s been Anderson.

    Either way, both are incredibly fast in the open field and have flashed brilliance.

    Great: Victor Stoffel, RT

    What a season it’s been so far for Temple’s right tackle. With ideal size, Victor Stoffel has built on a solid 2022 campaign and put it all together in 2023 with his run-blocking skills and pass sets.

    Grand: Diwun Black, EDGE

    On a team of known troublemakers for opposing offenses, Diwun Black has come out of nowhere in 2023. Black’s ripped through offensive linemen with a handful of pressures, including a team-high 1.5 sacks, as the former Florida Gator has proven why he was a Power Five player after all.

    Wonderful: Jordan Magee, LB

    The brightest spot so far this season for Temple has been Jordan Magee. He’s second on the team with 23 tackles, but he’s flown around to the ball carriers at or around the line of scrimmage with terrific skill.

    Magee has added a sack and a pass breakup, as he can do it all.
