Wayland players honored by Central States Football League

A pair of Wayland Baptist Pioneers – both Lubbock Coronado High School products – were honored by the Central States Football League for their performances in WBU's game against Texas College on Saturday. Kendall Roberson was named CSFL Offensive Player of the Week while Samuel Bishop earned the conference's Defensive Player of the Week award.

Roberson, a 6-foot, 210-pound sophomore running back, rushed for 196 yards and three touchdowns on 27 carries. He scored on runs of 1, 8 and 53 yards while averaging 7.3 yards a carry. The 196 yards was Roberson's second-best rushing performance in his two years at Wayland, behind only his school-record 213-yard game a week earlier against Howard Payne.

Bishop, a 6-foot-1-inch, 215-pound sophomore linebacker, had four solo tackles against Texas College, all behind the line of scrimmage resulting in 44 yards of loss. Three of the tackles were quarterback sacks.

In Wayland's first-ever CSFL game, the Pioneers fell to Texas College, 36-29.

Oklahoma Baptist kicker Austin Manger was the CSFL Special Teams Player of the Week.

It's the second straight week the Pioneers have had a player recognized by the CSFL. Sophomore linebacker Jon-Lucas Poe was named conference Defensive Player of the Week following Wayland's game against Howard Payne.
