Swope Named SoCon Freshman of the Week
STATESBORO, Ga. - Dominique Swope earned Southern Conference Freshman of the Week honors after his first career start at B-Back in the 41-14 win over Elon. Swope carried the rock 15 times for 74 yards and scored two touchdowns - one on the ground and another through the air.
The Buford, Ga., native erased the Eagles' first deficit of the year with a score from five yards out in the first quarter. Swope also scored GSU's second touchdown, scoring on a 12-yard toss from Jaybo Shaw (Flowery Branch, Ga.) in the second quarter.
