OL Duke Ekblom, Mike MacDonald , Scott Leech, Andrew Savenelli, Sean Degnan, Springfield
The Springfield offensive line played a major role in the Pride racking up a season-best 503 yards on the ground. As a whole, the Pride's totaled 590 totaled yards of offense, marking the third time in four games it went over the 500-yard mark.

RB Joel Sweeney, Jr., UW-Eau Claire

RB Luke Sweeney, Sr., Pomona-Pitzer

He finished his career over the 3,000-yard mark for his career, helping the team snap an 18-game losing streak dating to 2010 and ending a five-game losing streak in the Peace Pipe Game, its annual rivalry game with CMS. He averaged 7.5 yards per carries and scored twice.

WR Antwan Thorpe, Sr., Greensboro
Thorpe had a monster day for the Pride, catching 22 passes for 391 yards and three touchdowns. On a game-winning five-play, 72-yard drive, Thorpe accounted for four plays and 66 of those yards, including a 13-yard touchdown with 17 seconds remaining on a five-play, 72-yard game winning drive.

WR Brian Spencer, Sr., Albion
Spencer had 16 catches for 213 yards and two touchdowns for the Britons in a 28-20 loss to Hope.

TE Sam Marshall, Sr., Macalester

Defense

DE Mark Capetola, Jr., Albright
Capetola forced four forced fumbles as Albright held Lebanon Valley's offense scoreless until the final minute of the game. He added two and a half sacks and six and a half tackles for loss among his 11 total tackles.

DT Anthony Monroe, So., Cal Lutheran
Monroe continued to embrace his starting role with 10 total tackles, four solo stops, three and a half for a loss. Monroe was credited with a pair of huge sacks for a loss of 37 combined yards. In two games he has 25 tackles with three sacks. 

DT Nalik Davis, Fr., Cornell
Davis set career highs with 11 total tackles, five tackles for loss and three sacks in Cornell's first season-ending win since 2002. The defense held Grinnell to 125 yards in the first half as the Rams built a 25-0 lead. 

DE Frank Weymiller, Sr., Coe
Weymiller's four sacks were tied for the second most in school history, to go along with four and a half tackles for loss. He also forced two fumbles and had 11 tackles, five solo in a win against Central.

LB Michael Shield, Fr., Rhodes
Shield racked up 21 total tackles, 11 of them solo, as Rhodes finished its season 6-3 with a 31-24 win against Centre. He blocked a kick, had a pass breakup, a sack and one and a half tackles for loss.

LB Richard Logan, Sr., Louisiana College
Logan, who re-injured his thumb that was already in a cast because of torn ligaments suffered in practice, had a career high 15 tackles in a 45-37 victory over Hardin-Simmons. Logan had 11 solo stops, a tackle for loss and two pass breakups.

LB John Hunter, Sr., Washington and Jefferson
Hunter racked up 15 tackles, the most by a W&J player in 18 contests. He had three and a half tackles for loss in the Presidents' 31-14 win at Waynesburg.

CB Tim Littles, So., Heidelberg
Littles broke up three passes and had 11 tackles, 10 solo, in the Student Princes' 35-34 win against Baldwin Wallace.

S Zach Dolan, Sr., St. John Fisher
Dolan picked off Andrew Benkwitt twice, after the Utica quarterback entered the game having thrown just six picks all year. He also had three tackles in the 55-20 win.

S Andre Green, Fr., Cortland State
Green had 10 tackles, four solo, and a pass broken up as Cortland State defeated Ithaca 16-10 for the Cortaca Jug. 

CB Tony Tatum, Sr., Gallaudet
Tatum made his presence known against SUNY-Maritime as the Privateers rarely threw his way in a 21-0 Gallaudet win. When the throws came his way he made two pass breakups and intercepted a pass, returning it 80 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter to give the Bison a 14-0 lead.

Special teams

K Kevin Grady, Jr., Redlands
Grady fired off a school-record five field goals in the Bulldogs' impressive 63-40 win over Whittier on Saturday, capping off the team's 6-1 showing in SCIAC. He also converted six extra points.

P Josh Eppler, Jr., Howard Payne
Eppler broke a Division III record with a 92-yard punt in a 47-6 home loss to Texas Lutheran. Eppler's boom came late in the second quarter as the Yellow Jackets were facing fourth-and-long on their own 8-yard line. His punt landed in the TLU end zone. The old record of 90 yards was accomplished by Redlands' Sean Lipscomb in 2000 and Coe's Dan Heeren in 1974. On the game, Eppler averaged 42.8 yards on nine punts and also made 11 tackles playing free safety.

RET Josh Mitchell, Sr., North Central (Ill.)
Mitchell scored North Central's first touchdown on an 80-yard punt return, against an Augustana team which had allowed just 45 punt return yards all season. He had three other returns of at least 25 yards and kept the Cardinals' offense operating with a short field all afternoon as five of NCC's six scoring drives covered 35 yards or less.
