Former South Lakes Seahawk football player Sean Price was named Southern Conference Freshman of the Week after he amassed a record-tying third 100-yard effort for Appalachian State in as many games.
Price, a redshirt freshman and 2011 South Lakes graduate, caught eight passes for 128 yards and two touchdowns in Appalachian State’s 55-14 win over Coastal Carolina on Saturday. Price, who also topped 100 receiving yards in each of his first two games of the season, tied Appalachian’s all-time record with his third-straight 100-yard game.
Price is the only freshman in Appalachian State history with multiple 100-yard receiving games. He leads the Mountaineers with 26 receptions for 361 yards and five touchdowns, despite playing in only three of the team’s first five games.
With only three games played, he does not qualify for the official NCAA statistical rankings, but if he did, he would rank fifth nationally in receiving yards (120.3/gm) and sixth in receptions (8.7/gm) while leading the SoCon in both categories. Despite playing just three games, his 361 total receiving yards are good for 27th nationally.
