Last week it was Brandon Banks, this week it is Grant Gregory and Emmanuel Lamur.
That’s right, the Kansas State football team has doubled up on its Big 12 Player of the Week awards.
On Monday, the league office announced that quarterback Grant Gregory was the offensive player of the week and safety Emmanuel Lamur was special teams player of the week.
The honors mark the eighth time in school history that two K-State players have earned Big 12 weekly accolades in the same week, with the last time being in 2007 when Josh Freeman and Jordy Nelson were honored following their win over Texas.
Gregory, a 23-year old transfer from South Florida, threw for two touchdowns and ran for another in his first collegiate start against Iowa State. He completed 16-of-23 passes for 206 yards and guided the Wildcats to victory.
Lamur, a sophomore, blocked the potential tying extra point with 32 seconds remaining to preserve the win. It was his second block of the season. He also collected seven tackles in the game.
