LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - It's almost understood that during the 1st game of the season, MSU running back Marcus Wiltz wasn't expecting to have the game he did. During the game against Lamar, starting running back Champlain Babin suffered an injury early. In comes Wiltz. He lit up the Cardinals defense for 162 yards on 26 carries.
He was able to rack up a few awards like Southland Conference Offensive Player of the Week, and was voted as the team's Offensive Player of the Game. Wiltz was the only player in the conference to rush for 100 yards in the game and he is this week's 7 Sports Person of the Week. Congratulations to Marcus Wiltz.
