ATHENS, Ohio - Ohio University redshirt sophomore linebacker Jovon Johnson was named the Mid-American Conference Player of the Week on Monday.
Johnson received the weekly honor following his performance in the Bobcats' home-opener against North Texas.
In his first career start, Johnson helped anchor an Ohio defensive unit, which limited North Texas to just 2.7 yards rushing.
He also registered a pair of solo tackles, had one fumble recovery and had an interception return for a touchdown, which gave the Bobcats a 21-7 lead in the first half.
Ohio returns to action this Saturday as it welcomes Marshall to Peden Stadium for its annual Battle of the Bell matchup. The game can be seen on ESPNews. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m.
