FAQUAY-VARINA, N.C. | Florida A&M University quarterback Ryan Stanley was named the BOXTOROW National Player of the Week on Monday.
Stanley, a native of Pembroke Pines, Fla., completed 22 of 32 passes for 306 yards and four touchdowns, including two fourth-quarter scores to Xavier Smith. In addition, he carried the ball three times for 22 yards in Saturday’s 28-21 victory over North Carolina Central.
Stanley, who already owns the all-time FAMU completions record with 616, is approaching another milestone. He should surpass Quinn Gray’s all-time passing mark on Saturday at South Carolina State. Stanley needs just 27 yards to break the record. He also sits just seven touchdown passes from breaking Gray’s record of 57. Lastly, the redshirt senior needs 98 pass attempts to own the record.
Florida A&M returns to action on Saturday at South Carolina State. Kickoff from Oliver C. Dawson Bulldog Stadium is set for 2 p.m. and the game will be streamed live on ESPN3, with a rebroadcast at 10:30 p.m. on ESPNU.
