    (STATS) -- Following a thoroughly dominant regular season, Jeremiah Briscoe and Sam Houston State were far and away the biggest winners of the Southland Conferences top honors.Briscoe began what should be a busy award season for the junior quarterback by being named the Southlands Player of the Year, and the top-ranked Bearkats nearly pulled off a sweep of the conferences postseason honors after their 11-0 campaign.All but one of the Southlands seven awards went to Sam Houston State, the only FCS team yet to lose after defeating its opponents by an average of 28.3 points -- none by fewer than 13. The Bearkats placed six players on the all-conference first-team offense and another three on defense.Briscoe appears to be a favorite for the Walter Payton Award, given to the STATS national FCS player of the year. His 52 touchdown passes are 12 more than any quarterback, including the FBS, and put him within four of the all-time FCS single-season record. He also led the Subdivision with 4,096 passing yards while throwing just seven interceptions.Two of Briscoes favorite targets are also taking home hardware, with junior Yedidiah Louis winning Southland Offensive Player of the Year and fellow wideout Nathan Stewart being named Freshman of the Year. Each of them caught 11 TD passes, with Louis making 65 catches for 977 yards while Stewart had 47 receptions for 903 yards.Bearkats junior defensive end P.J. Hall earned Defensive Player of the Year honors after leading the Southland with 9 1/2 sacks and 20 tackles for loss, and teammate Bridge Blount won Offensive Lineman of the Year.SHSUs K.C. Keeler was the obvious choice for Southland Coach of the Year. He guided the Bearkats to the second undefeated season in school history, with the other coming in 2011. His team has a first-round playoff bye after reaching the national semifinals last year.The only player who prevented a complete Sam Houston State sweep was McNeese quarterback James Tabary, who was named Newcomer of the Year. The sophomore transferred from Arkansas State and finished second in the conference behind Briscoe with 3,036 passing yards and 23 touchdown passes.---=SOUTHLAND POSTSEASON AWARDS=PLAYER OF THE YEAR -- Jeremiah Briscoe, QB, Sam Houston StateOFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR -- Yedidiah Louis, WR, Sam Houston StateDEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR -- P.J.

Anthony Fowler hopes his experience will see him prevail in a treacherous opening bout at Rio 2016.The Great Britain middleweight faces No. 5 seed Zhanibek Alimkhanuly, who won gold at the 2013 World Amateur Championships in his homeland Kazakhstan, on Monday.Fowler, who is the cousin of former England footballer Robbie Fowler, had to settle for bronze at the same 2013 World Amateur Championships after injury prevented him boxing in the semifinals.The 25-year-old, from Liverpool, is aiming to ensure Great Britain wins an Olympic middleweight boxing medal for the third successive Games following 2012 bronze medallist Anthony Ogogo and 2008 gold medallist James DeGale.Ive won gold at the Commonwealth Games and bronze at the World Championships and they have all got me ready for this, and I know for a fact Rio wont be too much for me and I will handle the pressure and perform to my best, said Fowler.I do think middleweight is one of the hardest divisions because its the average weight for a man so theres a lot more competition. Its very tough but I know on my day I can beat them all.Looking at previous middleweights, they have all done well, Anthony Ogogo got a bronze, James DeGale won gold, so hopefully I will keep that going and I dont see why not, Id love to do it.Fowlers cousiin Robbie knows all about the pressure that comes with representing your country at a global tournament, having gone to two European Championships and the 2002 World Cup with England.dddddddddddd.However, the retired Liverpool striker has not been doling out advice as Anthony prepares for Rio. Robbie doesnt give me any tips about boxing, he sticks to the football and I stick to the boxing, said Fowler.Ive never really thought about talking to him about the major tournaments he has been to. Theyre such different sports. In football theres a template on the pitch, whereas I get in the ring and theres a lad trying to knock me out. Its a completely different game.People think it helps me in some way having him as my cousin, but it doesnt help me at all. He wishes me luck and thats it.The Great Britain middleweight has turned down offers to turn professional in order to pursue his dream of winning Olympic gold.Im trying to take it one step at a time but obviously turning professional is a long-term goal of mine that I might pursue after Rio, Fowler said.But at the moment my only concern is that gold medal, Ive been working towards that for six years now.
