OVC FOOTBALL: Offense, defense helping EKU control the clock



Many happy returns

Prior to Saturday’s win over Austin Peay, the Colonels hadn’t had a kick return of more than 38 yards all season.

Stanley Absanon changed that.

The freshman defensive back from Auburndale, Fla., returned a kickoff 82 yards to the Governors’ 9-yard line in the second quarter. That big play set up a Matt Denham touchdown that put EKU up 28-7.

“It was pretty much a one-man show,” Hood said of the big return. “I’d like to say that we schemed them up and everyone did a great job blocking. But, we did an average job blocking and Stanley is just a special athlete who has that type of ability on every play.”
