For the second time this season, a New Mexico Highlands University football player has been honored as Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week.
Jordan Campbell, a 6-0, 230-lb. junior linebacker from Corona, Calif., earned the award this past week after a monster effort in the Cowboys’ 40-34 upset of then-No. 20 Colorado School of Mines in Golden. Campbell led Highlands with 10 tackles, including three and a half for a total loss of 16 yards. He also intercepted a ball and ran it back 17 yards.
