Albany - When Hosea Harris took over the reins of the Albany State offense from the Uyl Joyner, the question Golden Ram fans had is could Harris win the big game like his precedessor.
Harris answered with a resounding yes in Albany State's 31-21 win over Tuskegee Saturday night.
The senior quarterback threw for 188 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for 112 yards and another score on Saturday.
70 of those rushing yards came on Albany State's first touchdown of the night when the Rams were trailing the Tigers by ten points.
Hosea Harris' performance against Tuskegee has earned him offensive player of the week honors in the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference as the Rams still control their own destiny in a bid for a third straight conference title.
And Albany State fans have to feel better about their chances for a three-peat with Hosea Harris under center for the Albany State offense.
Hosea Harris said "I feel like I answered alot of questions as far as whether I could win the big game and whether I could step up and leading the team to a big victory. So, I feel I answered alot of questions by the win on Saturday."
Tackle Ron Simmons is the SIAC offensive lineman of the week and punter Randy Allen is the special teams player of the week.
Albany State has an open date this week and is back in action at Clark University on October 15th.
