Sam Houston's Briscoe claims Walter Payton Award for second time

(STATS) - Jeremiah Briscoe's humility shined on a weekly basis this season. At every opportunity, the Sam Houston State quarterback credited his team's wide receivers and offensive linemen for his success.

Make no mistake, though, Briscoe's leadership and powerful right arm meant even more to the nationally ranked program out of the Southland Conference.

Briscoe claimed the 2017 STATS FCS Walter Payton Award as the national offensive player of the year Friday night at the national awards banquet in Frisco, Texas. He's just the second two-time recipient of the 31-year-old award, joining Appalachian State quarterback Armanti Edwards in 2008 and '09.
