First Team All-Explosive: Week 6



Throughout the first few weeks of the college football season, offenses have been fast and high-flying with several transfer’s helping to lead the explosiveness factor on their new program’s.

Here’s a look at three’s transfers we’ve yet to discuss at TPR, that’ve definitely earned First Team All-Explosive so far this season:


1.) Anthony Simpson – WR, UMass

While it’s been a tough start to the season fo the 1-5 Minutemen, the Arizona transfer has been a major bright spot on the offense end and leads the team in essentially every receiving category

Simpson currently has 566 receiving yards, averages 17.2 yards/catch, and has already managed three touchdowns on the season. Most recently, he secured seven catches for 140 yards and a touchdown as UMass fell to Toledo 41-24.

The downfield threat has some major speed which he’s showcased with a couple massive TD receptions, and sits top-10 amongst all FBS transfers in receiving yards, average yards/reception, and total receptions.


2.) Joey Hobert – WR, Texas State

The former Washington State receiver has been a significant part of this rebuilt Bobcats offense with a team-leading 38 receptions, 502 receiving yards, four touchdowns, and a long completion of 83 yards.

In terms of explosiveness, Hobert’s on double duty as Texas State’s slot receiver and punt returner, putting together eight catches, 132 receiving yards, a touchdown, and two punt return attempts this past weekend.

With the Bobcats at 4-2 featuring wins over Baylor, Jackson State, and Nevada, Hobert is currently top-5 in receptions, receiving yards, and receiving yards/game between all FBS transfers.


3.) Dylan McDuffie – RB, Kansas

With the Jayhawks ranked once again, the former Buffalo and Georgia Tech running back had an explosive and season-high performance against UCF this past weekend. 

In which, McDuffie rushed the ball 13 times, picking up 91 yards on the ground and averaging seven yards/carry, while getting in the endzone twice for a pair of touchdowns in the 51-22 win.

The three-headed backfield of Kansas has been the key to unlocking this offense throughout the season and as the team’s third down and goalline back, McDuffie has proven a big play threat consistently.
