LSU QB Jayden Daniels and UCF DB Demari Henderson named Walter Camp National FBS Players of the Week, presented by The Heights Group at Morgan Stanley

The Walter Camp Football Foundation has announced the Football Bowl Subdivision National Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week for games ending November 11, presented by The Heights Group at Morgan Stanley.    


About the Award: This is the 20th year that the Walter Camp Football Foundation will honor one offensive and one defensive player as its national Football Bowl Subdivision player of the week during the regular season.  Recipients are selected by a panel of national media members and administered by the Foundation.   It is the nation’s longest running Player of Week award.




Senior, Quarterback, San Bernardino, CA

Jayden Daniels became the first player in FBS history to throw for at least 350 yards and run for at least 200 yards as 18th-ranked LSU (7-3, 5-2 in SEC) defeated Florida, 52-35.  Daniels’ 606 yards of total offense included 372 yards passing and 234 yards rushing — 85 of which came on the longest run by an LSU quarterback in program history in the second quarter. He scored five touchdowns in all.


Notes: Jayden Daniels is the 13th LSU player to earn Walter Camp National Player of the Week honors since 2004.  Linebacker Harold Perkins was the last LSU honoree (Nov. 13, 2022).




Sophomore, Defensive Back, Sanford, FL

Demari Henderson had two interceptions, recovered one fumble, and tallied four tackles as UCF defeated 15th-ranked Oklahoma State, 45-3.   UCF’s dominant defense held OSU without a touchdown for the first time in more than a full calendar year and held the Cowboys (averaged 180 rushing yards a game) to just 52.


Notes: Demari Henderson is the fifth UCF player to earn Walter Camp National FBS Player of Week honors since 2004, and the first since Dillon Gabriel (Sept. 15, 2019).   He is also the second defensive honoree (Terrance Plummer, Oct. 12, 2014).


Walter Camp, “The Father of American football,” first selected an All-America team in 1889. Camp – a former Yale University athlete and football coach – is also credited with developing play from scrimmage, set plays, the numerical assessment of goals and tries and the restriction of play to eleven men per side. The Walter Camp Football Foundation ( – a New Haven-based all-volunteer group – was founded in 1967 to perpetuate the ideals of Camp and to continue the tradition of selecting annually an All-America team.  The Foundation is a member of the National College Football Awards Association (NCFAA). Founded in 1997, the NCFAA includes college football’s most prestigious awards and its 24 awards have honored more than 900 recipients dating back to 1935. This season, 12 NCFAA awards will honor national players of the week each Tuesday.  For more information about the NCFAA and its award programs, visit the redesigned or follow on X at @NCFAA.
