Bingham named Sun-Belt Defensive Player of the Year

Arkansas State senior and former Marlboro County Bulldog Ronheen Bingham has been named the Sun Belt Conference Defensive Player of the Year.
Bingham helped lead the Red Wolves to an 8-4 overall record and a berth in the Arizona Bowl, where they will play The University of Nevada.
This season Bingham, a defensive end, finished the regular season with 65 total tackles and nine quarterback sacks.  He also had 19 tackles for lost yardage.
His sacks and tackles for loss lead the conference.
As a junior he was an all-conference selection with 5 sacks and 8 tackles for loss.  Nationally, Bingham is 11th in tackles for loss and 21st in sacks, while also ranking No. 9 in the nation among defensive linemen in tackles.
The South Carolina Football Hall of Fame (SCFHOF) has announced that  Bingham has been named one of 20 finalists for the Blanchard-Rogers Award that is presented annually to the most outstanding collegiate player of the year who has ties to the state of South Carolina.
The Blanchard-Rogers trophy will be awarded at the SCFHOF’s annual Enshrinement Banquet on April 23, 2019, at the Hilton Greenville. This year marks the sixth straight season the organization has honored the collegiate player of the year from South Carolina.
Bingham’s final college game will be in the bowl game, which is scheduled for December 29 at 1:15 p.m.  It will be televised on the CBS Sports Network.
