This is the first weekly award for the 2020-21 season and the freshman of the week award is a new addition for this year.

Lapwai native, former EWU

football player Guillory dies

Raphael Guillory, the starting free safety on the first Eastern Washington University team to win the Big Sky Conference football championship, passed away Sunday after a long battle with cancer.

He was 49 and leaves behind his wife, Gloria, and five children.

He played for Eastern in 1992 and 1993, and went on to become an Eastern professor and earn his PhD. He played at Walla Walla Community College before he came to Eastern, where he was a teammate for one season with his younger brother, Justin Guillory.

Formerly from Lapwai, Raphael earned Academic All-District VIII honors and was on the Big Sky Conference All-Academic team as a senior in 1993. He earned his bachelor's degree from Eastern in 1994 in sociology with a minor in communications.

He had 52 tackles, five passes broken up and two interceptions in 11 games in 1992. He had a career-high 10 tackles in EWU's opener versus Portland State, and had interceptions versus Montana and Northern Iowa in the FCS Playoffs. As a senior in 1993, he finished with 30 tackles in nine games with one pass broken up.

He served as a player representative for the 1992 team when that squad was inducted into the Eastern Athletics Hall of Fame in 2017 on the 25th anniversary of the Eagles winning their first Big Sky Conference football title. That squad finished 7-4 and advanced to the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision Playoffs (then known as I-AA).
