The News staff report
Brendan Langley changed the game when he picked off a pass and weaved 86 yards for a tie-breaking touchdown late in the third quarter of Lamar’s 28-21 football win at Incarnate Word on Saturday.
That play, along with a team-high seven tackles, helped the Georgia transfer earn Southland Conference Defensive Player of the Week honors, the conference announced Monday.
Langley earned the award for the first time and became the fourth from Lamar this season to be honored so.
He entered the final week of preseason camp listed as a starting wide receiver before moving to defensive back. To date, he has 18 tackles, 13 of them solo, and has broken up 11 passes for the Cardinals without a start. He played in nine games as a freshman at Georgia, but missed all of the 2014 season.
Lamar has announced that Saturday’s season finale at home against third-ranked McNeese State will be webcast on Kickoff is set for 6 p.m.
The Cardinals (5-5, 4-4 Southland) are looking for their second straight winning record and second win in a row over the Cowboys, following last season’s 30-27 thriller in Lake Charles. McNeese (9-0, 8-0) has secured at least a share of the Southland championship.
