Darius Anderson has put himself on the map.

TCU’s sophomore running back, who has been destroying defenses through the first month of the season, was named the Walter Camp National Player of the Week Sunday for his performance during TCU’s upset of the #6 Oklahoma State Cowboys.

Anderson had career highs on the ground and through the air in Saturday’s victory, going for 160 yards and three scores rushing, on 26 attempts (6.9 per rush) and catching four passes for 41 yards. On the season, he has already compiled 426 yards on 68 touches and six scores, and is averaging 6.28 yards per carry.

Here is the full release:

DARIUS ANDERSON, TCU

Sophomore, Running Back, Rosenburg, TX/George Ranch HS

Darius Anderson rushed for a career-high 160 yards and scored three touchdowns as 16th-ranked TCU defeated 6th-ranked Oklahoma State, 44-31. Anderson scored on runs of 28, 6 and 42 yards as the Horned Frogs improved to 4-0, 1-0 in the Big 12.

Notes: Darius Anderson is the ninth TCU player to earn Walter Camp National Player of the Week honors since 2004, and the first since linebacker Ty Summers (Nov. 29, 2015).

About the Award: This is the 14th 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.

Congratulations to Darius, on what is likely just the first of many honors coming for the sophomore sensation!
