HBCU Heroes: Week 7 standouts who caught the eye of the HBCU Spirit of America Bowl

Richard Harris, RB, Delaware State – This week he rumbled for 151 yards on 21 carries. The 6000 running back from “STRONG Island” aka Long Island, New York was a beast against Morgan State. While they did not get the win, Harris was a monster week 7.

Jalen Morton, QB, Prairie View A&M University – If you watched HBCU football you would be blown away by the Morton dissects the game. He is a surgeon in the backfield and can kill you in the passing game and running the ball. He finished this week with 287 yards passing and 1 touchdown and also added 133 yards rushing and scored. This kid is legit and NFL teams are paying attention.

Shai McKenzie, RB, Hampton – I am going to put him on my list again because he is running hard. The former Virginia Tech running back looks great at Hampton. He ran for 147 yards on 20 carries and reached the end zone twice. This is the second time McKenzie made my list for HBCU Heroes!

Manasseh Bailey, WR, Morgan State – Yep this is not the first time you have read this name. He has quickly become the fastest rising HBCU player in my opinion. Bailey has shined this year and has went over 100 yards three times on the season. He is having a great season.

Deondre Francois, QB, Hampton University – The second Hampton player on the week. I am an undercover fan of Francois, because the kid is from right down the road from me. He had a great game this week throwing for 357 yards with one touchdown and while they could not beat Gardner Webb, he is as talented as they come.
