Kieron James saves win for WIU

Kieron James saved the day for Western Illinois and helped the Leathernecks moved into the “Sweet 16” round of the FCS (I-AA) playoffs last Saturday with a key interception at the goal line.

It was the first college career interception for the former Southeast High standout and preserved his team’s 17-10 victory over host Coastal Carolina.

The victory earns James and his teammates a game at I-AA power and FCS Tournament top seed Appalachian State this Saturday.

The 6-0, 185 pound sophomore cornerback picked off the pass with 1:33 left in the game and returned it 35 yards allowing WIU (8-4) to run out the clock.

James has started 11 of 12 games this season and has 41 tackles with six pass breakups, eight passes defended one forced fumble.
