PHILADELPHIA - In the early afternoon on Monday, Nick Addison was recognized as the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Defensive Player of the Week, but the weekly accolades for his well-deserving performance did not end there. In addition to the MEAC recognition, Addison also earned honors as The Sports Network (TSN) FCS Defensive Player of the Week, along with honors from College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) and Beyond Sports Network (BSN).

In earning TSN national player honors, the Tampa native sophomore becomes the first B-CU player to earn FCS Defensive Player of the Week since Ryan Davis after last year's Norfolk State victory (Oct. 20).

A 6-2 free safety, Addison collected 11 tackles (nine solo) against the Hampton Pirates, aiding the Wildcats to a 38-26 road victory, while also making big plays in pass defense, with two interceptions on the night. One interception ended the final Hampton drive of the first half at the two-yard line, while he took the second 90 yards for a touchdown; on B-CU's fourth longest interception return in program history.

Addison also forced one Hampton fumble, resulting in one of B-CU's seven takeaways.

In the CFPA weekly awards, Addison earned FCS Co-Defensive Back of the Week honors.

BSN named him its FCS Defensive Back of the Week.

The Wildcats return to action at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, taking on North Carolina A&T at Municipal Stadium in B-CU's 2012 Homecoming game.
