Former Northwood Standout Montel Goods Named National Freshman of the Week

BUIES CREEK, N.C. – After posting 193 yards rushing and three touchdowns, Campbell’s Montel Goods has been named FCS National Freshman of the Week by STATS.

Goods helped Campbell down Morehead State 38-0 Saturday and was named the Pioneer Football League’s Offensive Player of the Week.

Making his first career start at running back, Goods' 193 yards stands as the second-highest total in Campbell's Division I era, and the most ever by a Camel at Barker-Lane Stadium.

The Pittsboro, N.C. native and former Northwood star carried 27 times for 193 yards, averaging 7.1 yards per attempt. In just three career games, Goods has scored six touchdowns, adding 260 yards rushing.

Goods’ first TD of the day came from three yards out on the third play of the second quarter, capping a 13-play, 83-yard drive, Mitchell Brown added the PAT and the Camels took a 7-0 lead.

He added a two-yard touchdown run in the third, rounding off a 12-play, 77-yard drive to put Campbell up 24-0. Goods' third touchdown of the day – a three-yard run – completed a six-play, 65-yard march in only 1:44 and left CU in front 38-0 with 11:41 left in the game. The three touchdown day marked the 11th time a Camel has reached the endzone at least three times in a single game.

The Camels will host Valparaiso this week (Oct. 7). Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. at Barker-Lane Stadium.
