Cruz Manrriquez, a senior defensive back, was selected as the State Farm Player of the Week for his performance against the Fort Smith Southside Rebels in week 9 of the 2014 season. Cruz helped the Bulldogs throughout the night, but his biggest play happened in the first quarter. With the Rebels deep in Bulldog territory, Manrriquez help halt the Rebels with a drive stopping interception inside the 10 yard line. Cruz was tested throughout the evening and stood tall for the Bulldogs. Cornerback coach Derek Moore said it couldn't have happened to a more deserving player.

Manrriquez finished the evening with 4 solo tackles, 2 pass break ups, 1 interception, and many passes defended.
