Liberty Flames (6-5)


Burks, Basile, Ellis headline All-Big South

(STATS) - Kennesaw State has the right person directing its offense. Not only is quarterback Chandler Burks the Big South offensive player of the year, he's also the conference's scholar-athlete of the year.

Burks accomplished that double for the first time in Big South history when the conference awards were announced Tuesday.

Seeking to become the first Big South signal caller with 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 passing yards in the same season, Burks leads a 10-1, third-year FCS team which claimed the Big South title and automatic playoff bid for the first time. The Owls earned the most first-team (10) and overall (17) all-conference selections.
