Eastern Kentucky University linebacker Leodis Moore III was chosen as the Ohio Valley Conference Defensive Player of the Week, the league announced on Sunday from its Brentwood, Tennessee headquarters.
Moore did it all against the Thundering Herd. The 5-foot-9, 190-pound native of Indianapolis, Indiana had seven tackles, one tackle for a loss, one interception and blocked an extra-point attempt.
Moore’s interception at the EKU 23 yard line in the second quarter stopped a Marshall drive and allowed the Colonels to stay within seven points.
Eastern Kentucky will play at Bowling Green State University on Saturday. Kickoff is scheduled for 4 p.m.
