Freshman linebacker Randy Fillingame was selected as the USA South Defensive Rookie of the Week for the week ending Oct. 6. Fillingame is the third LaGrange player this season to receive a conference weekly honor. Last week, Peyton Haynes was the Defensive Player of the Week and Brendon Scott the Offensive Player of the Week.
Fillingame recorded a game-high 12 total tackles and had two interceptions in LC's loss to USA South foe N.C. Wesleyan. The 12 total tackles was a season for him. Fillingame became the fourth LC player to have at least two interceptions in a game. He leads the team with 28 total tackles, which includes a team-best seven tackles for loss. Fillingame ranks eighth in tackles and 11th in tackles for loss in the conference.
