The Southern Conference announced its September athletes of the month for football, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s soccer and volleyball Wednesday, highlighting excellence

among student-athletes during the month.



Appalachian State freshman linebacker John Law posted a SoCon-best 12.5 tackles per game in the first month of the season and 50 total tackles to rank fourth in the conference despite playing one game fewer than half the league. Law came up with three takeaways in the month, with all of them coming against Elon on Sept. 21. After making 15 tackles, recovering a fumble and coming up with a pair of interceptions against the Phoenix, Law was named the SoCon Defensive Player of the Week. Law led the Mountaineers in tackles in each of their first three games, making 12 in a season-opening loss at No. 20 Montana on Aug. 31 that led to his being named the SoCon Freshman of the Week. Law added 14 tackles against North Carolina A&T before breaking out against Elon two weeks later.
