Sept. 30, 2013
NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Sophomore wide receiver Aaron Thomas was named an FCS College Football Performance Awards Wide Receiver Performer of the Week on Sunday evening.
Thomas, a native of Burnet, Texas (Burnet HS), set an SFA record with 242 yards receiving on 10 receptions in the 'Jacks 56-48 loss at home to Prairie View A&M on Saturday, breaking the previous record held by Ronnie Hawthorne (218 yards in 1969 vs. Southwest Texas).
Thomas was just five yards shy of breaking the Southland Conference record for most receiving yards in a single game, falling just short of Ronald Bonner's (JSU) 247 yards against Northwestern State on Nov. 9, 1997.
The 'Jacks will have off the Saturday before beginning conference play on Oct. 12 at Southeastern Louisiana.
