Georgetown College stayed perfect in Mid-South Conference East action Saturday with a big road win against Union College. Helping play big roles in that were JJ Jude and Josh Depp.
Jude had nearly 200-yards of all-purpose yards, while Depp continues to be a weapon in special teams. For their efforts they earned MSC East honors for the second time this season and in their careers.
Jude was MSC East Offensive Player of the Week. He rushed 18 times for 155 yards and a score. He also had two catches for 32 yards and one was the opening touchdown – a lead the Tigers (6-1, 4-0) never relinquished.
The senior running back is 24th in the nation for touchdowns scored and 25th in the nation for total scoring. He is also ranked in the top 50 for all-purpose yards, total rushing, rushing yards per game, scoring touchdowns per game and scoring per game.
Depp went 5-for-5 in extra points Saturday and netted 369 yards on kickoffs and 151 yards on punting as he earned MSC East Special Teams Player of the Week.
He is right behind Jude on the team in the scoring department with 35 points this season on 32 extra points and one field goal.
The senior kicker is number one nationally with his 32-of-32 extra points this season. He's 10th in punting yards per attempt. He also ranks in the top 35 nationally for total scoring and scoring per game.
The Tigers take a final step out of MSC play with a 1:30 game Saturday hosting NCAA Division II Alderson Broaddus University.
