Former Junction City Blue Jay running back DJ Giddens picked up national awards following his historic performance on Saturday night for the Kansas State Wildcats.
Giddens, who graduated from Junction City High School, rushed the football for 207 yards and four touchdowns on Saturday night at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. Per K-State Athletics, it was the first time in school history that a player rushed the ball for 200 yards and scored four touchdowns in a single game. He also caught eight passes for 86 yards. Giddens was named the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week and the Doak Walker National Running Back of the Week.
The Wildcats are currently 3-1 on the season and are off this weekend before traveling to Stillwater next Friday (October 6) to take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys.
