West Virginia University senior defensive lineman Darius Stills has been named the Chuck Bednarik Award National Player of the Week for his performance in the Mountaineers’ double-overtime win against Baylor in Morgantown.

Stills, a Fairmont native, had four tackles, 2.5 sacks and 3.5 tackles for a loss in the 27-21 win against the visiting Bears. Stills was also named the Big 12’s co-Defensive Player of the Week for his performance.

So far in 2020 Stills has amassed seven total tackles, 2.5 sacks and 3.5 tackles for a loss.

Each week during the 2020 season the Maxwell Football Club will recognize outstanding performances with two weekly awards. The Maxwell Award Player of the Week will be recognized for overall performance on offense, defense or special teams, and the Chuck Bednarik Award Player of the Week will be honored for outstanding defensive play. Players selected do not have to be represented on the Maxwell or Bednarik Award watch lists.
