Young leads Ouachita to win over Valdosta State
Monday, Sep 21, 2009
By Staff † †


ARKADELPHIA, Ark. (BP)--Led by senior Jeremy Youngís school record 261 yards receiving, Ouachita Baptist started strong to carry the team to a 24-14 win over No. 16 Valdosta State Sept. 19.

The victory extends the Tigersí current winning streak to eight games, the longest since 1968.

The victory against the Blazers is the first in the programís history, after going 0-9 against Valdosta State since Ouachita joined the Gulf South Conference in 2000. It was the first victory over a top-25 opponent since the 2003 season, when the Tigers defeated Southeastern Oklahoma State and Central Arkansas.

With the victory, Ouachita improves to 3-0 on the season and 2-0 in Gulf South Conference play. Todd Knightís Tigers are two games shy of the school record for consecutive wins, a 10-game streak under Knightís former coach, Buddy Benson, spanning the final five games of the 1967 season through the first five games of 1968.
