Ryan Burns, Randolph-Macon, Sr., Defensive Back

Burns, a senior from Fredericksburg, Va., helped the Yellow Jackets shutdown Hampden-Sydney's offense in the second half on the way to a 56-28 victory in the 122nd edition of "The Game" on Saturday. Burns posted a game-high 15 tackles with 10 solo stops -- also a game-best. He also led all players with five passes defensed, including a momentum-swinging interception. With R-MC leading 28-21 early in the third quarter, Burns broke off his coverage assignment and intercepted a possible touchdown pass at the goal-line. He returned it 39 yards to setup Randolph-Macon with what would become a touchdown scoring drive, turning his interception into a possible 13-point swing-play. Burns finishes the season with 52 tackles including 36 solo stops. He notched three interceptions and broke up a league-best 16 passes.
