Albany State University quarterback Stanley Jennings is a nominee for the Heritage Sports Radio Network’s national football fan poll award. Jennings was selected as one of four nominees for the National Player of the Week award for his outstanding performance against the Morehouse College Maroon Tigers on Saturday, Oct. 23, in Atlanta, Ga.

A junior from Marietta, Ga., Jennings orchestrated ASU’s fourth quarter 13-12 come-from-behind win over Morehouse.  He completed 19 of 31 passes for 202 yards, including the game winning five yard pass with 18 seconds on the clock.  He also led the Golden Rams in rushing with 73 yards on 15 carries, including a 12 yard TD run.  Jennings finished the game with 253 yards of total offense.

Jennings won the HSRN fan poll award after his performance against Kentucky State University in the season opener.

HSRN honors the top-performances on the gridiron for Division I FCS and Div. II each week. To add to the excitement, fans across the country can be a part of the action by casting votes for the player they think had the top performance in HBCU football.  Fans can cast their votes for Jennings by visiting www.HSRN.com. Voting will be available on the HSRN.com home page (Fan Poll) until Wednesday, Oct.. 27, at 2 p.m. ET (1 p.m. CST).

Other nominees this week, who are all from Division II programs, are Kevin Atkins, quarterback at Shaw University, Kameron Smith, quarterback at Winston Salem State University, and Walter Sanders, running back at St. Augustine’s.
