LB Jack Campbell, Jr., Johns Hopkins

S Anthony White, Sr., Huntingdon
Leading 7-0, with Methodist at the Huntingdon 6-yard line, White set a school record with a 100-yard interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter. His second interception of the game, which he returned 23 yards to the Methodist 16, set up the Hawks' third touchdown in a 42-6 win.

S Drew Fitzmorris, So., Carnegie Mellon
Fitzmorris helped the Tartans to a 41-13 victory over visiting St. Vincent with seven tackles, five solo, one and a half for a loss and one interception.
