(Stats Perform) - A hulking offensive lineman at Southern Illinois University who grew up with weight training, ZeVeyon Furcron has basically been the strongest player on the team since he arrived on campus in 2016.
It's fitting. The strength he's shown in all facets of his life help to underscore why Furcron was announced on Wednesday as the 2021 recipient of the Stats Perform FCS Doris Robinson Award.
Furcron was one of 15 finalists - one from each FCS conference - to be nominated for the seventh annual award. Named after the late school teacher and wife of legendary Grambling State coach Eddie Robinson, it is presented to a student-athlete who excels both in the classroom and the community.
