For Bearkats, ring’s the thing in 2017 – Houston Chronicle

Quarterback Jeremiah Briscoe won the Walter Payton award last season as the top player in FCS, triggering Sam Houston State to an undefeated regular season, a Southland Conference championship, and No. 1 national ranking.

One thing was missing.”I would be perfectly fine if I didn’t throw one touchdown pass the whole season and win the national championship,” said the senior from Stratford by way of UAB.

“I would give up the Walter Payton award for the championship ring any day.”In 2016, Briscoe threw for 57 touchdowns and 4,602 yards in the Bearkats’ 12-1 season which ended with a 65-7 quarterfinal playoff loss at James Madison. Briscoe returns to run an explosive offense that averaged a national-best 49.5 points per game.
