Carden Named C-USA Offensive Player of the Week

Posted: Updated:

GREENVILLE, N.C. – East Carolina junior Shane Carden has been named Conference USA Offensive Player-of-the-Week following his six-touchdown performance in the Pirates' 55-31 non-conference win over North Carolina. The award was the second weekly league honor for Carden this season and fifth of his career.

 

Carden matched a personal best by directly accounting for the six touchdowns (of seven overall) in ECU's first win in Chapel Hill since 1975. He completed 32-of-47 passes for 376 yards and three TDs against the Tar Heels, which marked his sixth career 300-plus-yard contest.

 

The Houston, Texas native connected on six, seven and 48-yard scoring strikes, while adding three one-yard TD rushes to help the Pirates rack up 603 yards of total offense - ECU's seventh-highest single-game total in school history (and most since 2007). He also helped ECU establish a new single-game program standard with 101 plays and match another with 36 first downs.

 

Carden engineered nine scoring drives in 13 total possessions vs. UNC, including five-of-six in the second half and also played a key role converting all eight red zone appearances into points. He found 12 different receivers for at least one reception (seven for two or more) and 15-of-32 completions went for 10 or more yards. In addition to his 376 passing yards, he picked up 22 ground yards on eight attempts and posted his second career sack-free game (and first since Sept. 29, 2012).

 

In addition to his league honor, Carden has also garnered the following weekly honors:

 

·      Capital One Cup Impact Performance Nominee

·      College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) National Performer-of-the-Week

·      College Sports Madness C-USA Player-of-the-Week (second time this season)

·      Davey O'Brien Honorable Mention Player-of-the-Week

·      Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Player-of-the-Week (second-time this season)

·      ESPN Primetime Performer

·      ESPN Helmet Sticker

·      Manning Award Stars of the Week

 

The Pirates (3-1, 1-0 C-USA) will return to league play this Saturday, Oct. 5 when they travel to Middle Tennessee for a 3:30 p.m. (ET) tilt.
