Offense
QB Ben McLaughlin, Sr., Louisiana College
McLaughlin went 34-for-48 passing for 491 yards and six touchdowns and became the American Southwest Conference's career passing yards leader in the process, passing Howard Payne's Adam King. McLaughlin's record-setting completion was a 75-yard touchdown pass to Darnell Williams.

OL Mike Long, John Lavelle, Jim McKay, Sam Nosoff, Mike Lewis, Delaware Valley 
The veteran offensive line helped pave the way for Matt Cook to set a school record with 324 rushing yards. The offense held the ball for more than 21 minutes in the second half as the Aggies rallied for the 30-18 win.

RB Matt Cook, Sr., Delaware Valley
Cook shattered the single-game school record by 70 yards, carrying 42 times for 324 yards and tied the rushing touchdown mark with four in DVC's 30-18, come-from-behind win. In fact, he had 105 more rushing yards than Wilkes' entire offensive output for the day.

RB Clinton Orr, So., Albion
Orr gashed Hope for 276 all-purpose yards in a 27-14 win against Hope, rushing for 212 yards on 35 carries. His 6.1-yard average was boosted by seven plays resulting in at least 10 yards. Orr also caught two passes for 58 yards, including taking a screen pass for a 44-yard touchdown.

WR Clarke Cuthbert, Jr., Knox
Cuthbert caught eight passes for 242 yards and a touchdown, which was the result of a 78-yard pass play, in a 31-23 loss to Illinois College. Cuthbert’s reception yardage against the Blueboys places him second all-time in the program's history.

McCormick recorded a game-high 18 tackles, 10 unassisted, in a 27-24 win against Alfred. He also had a tackle for a loss of 2 yards and a pair of pass breakups, including one in the end zone that negated a would-be touchdown on a desperation throw to end the first half.

CB David Kalgren, So., Oberlin
Kalgren had a career-high 14 tackles, made two interceptions and blocked a kick in Oberlin's loss at Wabash. His first pick came in the final minutes of the first half and his 40-yard return into Little Giants territory on the play set up a Yeomen touchdown.

S Kyle Longsdorf, Fr., Defiance
Longsdorf tied an unbreakable NCAA record by returning an interception 100 yards for a touchdown to break open a 0-0 tie in the second quarter of Defiance’s 33-0 win at Earlham. He added six tackles, five solo.

S Nate Proulx, Jr., Occidental
Proulx recorded 22 tackles, nine solo, in Occidental's 39-26 win against Pomona-Pitzer. He also broke up a pass.

Bierbach posted six tackles, four solo, and capped off Lycoming's 31-7 win over Widener by running back an interception 84 yards for a touchdown with 11 seconds left.

CB Tyler Fasanella, Jr., Gettysburg
Fasanella had a hand in all three of Gettysburg’s interceptions in a 56-21 win over Juniata. Midway through the second quarter he tipped a pass that was grabbed out of the air by a teammate at the Gettysburg 39, and later in the quarter he intercepted a pass deep in Gettysburg territory, making a pick at the Bullet 2 and returning it 22 yards. Each of the Bullets first two interceptions led to a touchdown.

Special teams
K Peter Nilson, Sr., RPI
Nilson was successful on both his field goal attempts, including a 37-yarder with six seconds remaining that gave the Engineers a 27-24 win against No. 19 Alfred. He made that attempt despite the visitors calling three straight timeouts trying to ice him. Peter's other field goal came from 21 yards out and he was also successful on each of his three point after attempts.

P Chad Peevey, Fr., Mary Hardin-Baylor
Peevey averaged 47.0 yards per punt with a net of 43.2 against Southern Oregon. He pinned the Raiders inside their own 5-yard line twice and put three of his four kicks inside the SOU 20-yard line. He hit a career-long 59-yarder on a play where he scambled to avoid a block.
