NEW ORLEANS – For the second time this season, Coastal Carolina quarterback Grayson McCall has been named the Sun Belt Conference Offensive Player of the Week, it was announced on Monday.

McCall was also named a College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) Honorable Mention National Performer of the Week on Sunday.   McCall, who missed each of the two previous games due to an upper-body injury, returned in a big way in the win on Saturday over Texas State (Nov. 20).
