Its time to handle out another week’s worth of helmet stickers from Missouri’s game against South Carolina last weekend. The game ended in a heartbreaking loss for the Tigers, but they still played hard in defeat. Some of the best individual performances in that game were honored with a helmet sticker. We had two regulars receive the honors this week, along with two first time recipients. If you think we missed anyone, give a shout out to a hard working Tiger in the comments!
Murphy had another awesome game on Saturday, scoring two touchdowns and impacting the game on special teams. Murphy had 79 yards, averaging over five yards per carry, and gained 59 yards on kick returns. He even almost took a kick back to the house before being tripped up by the kicker on a shoestring tackle. Murphy is an explosive player in this offense, and deserves another helmet sticker for his great performance Saturday night.
Washington only had one catch against SC, but boy did he make it count. His 96 yard TD reception was a game-changer and sparked the crowd of 67,124 at Faurot Field into a frenzy. Washington gets a helmet sticker for that great catch and run.
Gibson fought his tail off all game and caught an nice interception near the endzone against the Gamecocks. Gibson played a lot more with EJ Gaines on the sidelines with injury, and the redshirt freshman delivered. This is Gibson’s first helmet sticker, and he deserves it after a great game from the young Tiger.
Britt had the tough assignment of going up against one of the most talented defensive lineman in all of college football Saturday, and he showed up in a big way. After last season, when he was manhandled by Jadeveon Clowney, Britt was relishing the opportunity to face him again. Clowney did have a couple of moments, but for the most part, Britt did an excellent job of containing and blocking Clowney. Great game by the 6’6″ redshirt senior to earn his first helmet sticker.
