COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (September 28, 2015) – The Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference deemed Colorado State University-Pueblo senior defensive lineman Morgan Fox (Fountain, Colo.) worthy of RMAC Defensive Player of the Week honors, announced by the league office Monday.

Fox continued to rack up sacks Saturday, as he totaled three in the 42-27 home victory against Western New Mexico University. The three sacks resulted in the loss of 31 yards for the Mustangs. Fox totaled six tackles (four solo), three tackles for loss and added four quarterback hurries.
