Team of the Week

Presented by Scoutware

Games of Oct. 26-27, 2012

Offense

QB Logan Turner, Sr., Hardin-Simmons
Turner threw for 685 yards on just 39 attempts and 24 completions, averaging 17.6 yards per attempt and 28.5 per completion in an 86-42 win against Sul Ross State.

OL Jordan Austin, Ty Olson, Seth Zimmerman, Andrew Gessler, Andrew Pankow, Cal Lutheran
The Kingsmen produced 638 yards of total offense with 442 through the air and 196 on the ground for eight touchdowns (five passing, three rushing) in a 62-38 victory on Saturday. Zach Shultis was 32-for-48 passing without being sacked. CLU running backs averaged 5.4 yards per carry and catches went for 13.8 per completion. Over the past two games the line has helped the Kingsmen gain 1302 total yards (810 of it passing) of offense without allowing a sack.

RB Devin Carver, Sr., Hardin-Simmons
Carver had 192 rushing yards and three touchdowns on the ground, plus three catches for 98 yards and a score through the air.

RB Matthew Olson, Fr., Martin Luther
Olson ran for 212 yards on 39 carries and had four catches for 54 yards in a 30-27 win against MacMurray. He also rushed for a touchdown and three two-point conversions for a team which needed to rely on the run (8-for-25 passing, five interceptions).

WR Duncan Hussey, Sr., Pomona-Pitzer
Hussey had an epic performance to nearly single-handedly lead the Sagehens to a win over Occidental in the annual Battle of the Drum. Hussey played both ways, and finished the day with 13 catches for 218 yards and a school-record tying three touchdowns, in only his second game ever playing wide receiver, while also adding five tackles, a sack and a pass breakup as a safety. Pomona-Pitzer trailed 21-7 at the half, but Hussey had 11 catches for 205 yards and three touchdowns in the second half alone, including a 78-yarder on the first play from scrimmage. 

WR Scott Pillar, Sr., Albright
Pillar had 13 catches for 223 yards and three TDs against 12th-ranked Widener. He had a 41-yard catch to set up his first touchdown and added a 57-yard TD catch. 

TE Mike Berkowitz, So., Hobart
Berkowitz caught four passes for a game- and career-high 89 yards and two touchdowns in Hobart's 42-34 win over Union. He scored on plays that covered 8 and 10 yards, but he's nominated for his efforts on his other two catches. Berkowitz also pulled in passes that gained 28 and 43 yards, ripping them away from defenders in coverage.

Defense

DE Tyre Coleman, So., Hobart
Coleman posted a team-high eight tackles, including six solo, as Hobart defeated Union 42-34. He broke the Statesmen game record for tackles for a loss with five stops behind the line of scrimmage, including three sacks. Coleman stopped the Dutchmen's first two fourth down conversion attempts. On the first, he dropped the Union ball carrier for a 6-yard loss. Hobart drove for its first touchdown on the ensuing drive. On the second, he batted down a pass at the line of scrimmage. On the very next play, Hobart scored on a 62-yard pass play for a 14-0 lead.

DT Bryan Narcisse, Jr., Worcester State
Narcisse finished with six tackles (five solo) including four tackles for a loss and a pair of sacks for 26 yards to help Worcester State defeat Fitchburg State 28-14.

DE Preston Thibeaux, So., Louisiana College
Playing with acute appendicitis, Thibeaux led his team to a 44-37 overtime victory over Texas Lutheran. Thibeaux, who underwent an emergency appendectomy on Sunday morning after the game, finished with eight tackles, four tackles for loss, two sacks, and a forced fumble. 

LB Sosthene Kapepula, So., Wesley
Kapepula had seven tackles, including one for loss and a fumble recovery as Wesley held Huntingdon to just 24 yards rushing in a 31-21 win.

LB Beau Steffens, So., UW-Oshkosh
Steffens totaled 11 tackles, including eight solo and a sack, as UW-Oshkosh defeated UW-La Crosse, 41-7. The win gave the Titans at least a share of the WIAC title and their first victory in La Crosse since 1967. Steffens recorded his sack, one of nine by the Titans, during the third quarter. In the second quarter, he made five tackles (four solo). Steffens helped limit the Eagles to 43 rushing yards on 43 carries.

LB Larry Delviscio, Sr., Gettysburg
DelViscio made a game-high 15 tackles, including 10 solo stops and three tackles for loss, in the Bullets' 42-20 win over Moravian. He has now made 51 tackles over his past three games.

CB Mitch McClune, Sr., WPI
McClune set a school record with four interceptions in WPI's 36-17 victory over St. Lawrence. A pick right before halftime thwarted a St. Lawrence scoring drive and set up an Engineer touchdown which gave the Crimson and Gray a 22-3 lead at the intermission. McClune added to his standout day with five tackles, including 1.5 for loss, and returned four kickoffs for 98 yards with a long of 41. 

S Bryan Mills, Jr., Pacific
Along with four tackles, Mills also had a pair of interceptions, one of which led to a Pacific field goal. He also had one fumble recovery and one pass breakup.

S John Robinson, Sr., Delaware Valley
Robinson produced two of the six turnovers forced by the Aggie defense. The first led to a first-half field goal while his second (the interception) stopped Lebanon Valley in Delaware Valley territory in the third quarter. He also had nine tackles, eight solo.

S Andre Green, Fr., Cortland State
Green shared the team lead with 12 tackles, including eight solo stops, in a win at Kean that clinched the NJAC title.

CB Cameron Cutter, Jr., Chapman
Cutter had two interceptions, a fumble recovery and also recovered a blocked field goal in Chapman's win against La Verne. He had three tackles, all solo.

Special teams

K Cody Ausherman, So., Methodist
Ausherman tied a school record with four field goals, including the game-tying 45-yarder on the final play of regulation and then the game-winning 23 yarder in OT in a 26-23 win against LaGrange.

P Reece Attard, Fr., Husson
Attard punted eight times for an average of 45.0 yards in a 17-14 overtime win against SUNY-Maritime. He also kicked the game-winning field goal, from 43 yards out, lifting a team that had just 157 yards of total offense.

RET Ira Jewitt, So., Louisiana College
With his team down 24-7 in the second quarter to Texas Lutheran, changed the momentum of the game with a 100-yard kick return for a touchdown. The return helped LC turn the game around, en route to a 44-37 overtime victory. Jewitt finished the game with a team leading 166 all-purpose yards, all of them on kickoff returns.
