Moses earns another honor

Another honor came Jeremy Moses’ way, after his big performance in the Stephen F. Austin State University Lumberjacks’ 22-20 victory over Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, Iowa, Saturday.

The SFA senior quarterback was named the Southland Conference’s Offensive Player of the Week, after he completed 37-of-55 passes for 356 yards and one touchdown.

Moses, from Baytown Lee High School, became only the second SLC quarterback to throw for more than 10,000 yards, He now has 10,243 yards and trails former Central Arkansas quarterback Nathan Brown, who threw for 10,558 yards. More

 

Young picks up another Southland honor

Continuing a stretch of three straight defensive honors for Stephen F. Austin State University, Jordyn Young was named Tuesday the Southland Conference Soccer Defensive Player of the Week. Young's honor follows two straight player of the week selections for back line teammate Jordan King.

Young played 31 minutes in SFA's 7-0 win over Texas Southern on Sunday. All her time was logged in the first half, when the Ladyjacks held Texas Southern without a shot attempt. The Tigers finished with just three shots for the game, only one of which was on goal. More

Accomplishments

Seven students recently traveled with the director of the sound recording technology program, Kevin Kelleher, to attend a two-day event in Nashville. Panels were held on topics such as “Recording Guitar,” “Anatomy of a Hit” and “Track, Overdub, Mix – The Link Between Home And Studio.” Additional panels were held on live sound, hosted by Meyer Sound and Yamaha. The students were able to learn from engineers and producers who have worked with artists such as George Harrison, Robert Plant, Metallica, Green Day, Keith Urban and Taylor Swift, among others.

 
The Educational Diagnostician program in the Department of Human Services has been nationally recognized by the Council for Exceptional Children, an international community of educators who are the voice and vision of special education. This program at SFA has demonstrated through performance-based assessment measures that candidates meet the standards of knowledge and skill required for the profession.
