QB Matt Pawlowski, Sr., Guilford
Pawlowski passed for a school- and ODAC-record 611 yards and a personal-best seven touchdowns in a 52-49 victory at Catholic. His 611 passing yards rank ninth in NCAA Division III history and mark the most by an NCAA quarterback this season in any division. Pawlowski also picked up 37 rushing yards and his 648 total offensive yards in the game stand fifth all-time in Division III, tops in all NCAA divisions this year. He was 37-for-63 passing.

OL Juan Guerrero, Christian Hernandez, Grant Potter, Toronny Thomas, Beau Kitson, La Verne
Behind its offensive line, La Verne amassed a season-high 421 rushing yards and scored seven rushing touchdowns on a Chapman defense that had only given up 146.5 rushing yards per game coming into the game. Three players broke the century mark on the ground, including quarterback William Livingston.

RB Jalen Holmes, Jr., Bethany
Holmes ran for a Bethany and PAC single-game record 341 yards in a 58-26 win over Grove City. His 341 yards are the second-most registered by a Division III runner this season. He rushed 26 times and scored four touchdowns in the victory.

RB Sam Lahr, Sr., Coe
Lahr became the seventh player in school history (23rd time) to rush for 200 yards in a game. It was the 11th-most yards in school history and first 200-yard game for Coe since Ashton Northern in 2006. He also scored a career-high four touchdowns. 

WR Hunter Thompson, So., St. Scholastica
Thompson had a career-high 10 receptions and set a program record with 297 yards receiving in Saturday's victory over Westminster (Mo.). He had touchdown receptions of 71 and 39 yards. The 297 all-purpose yards are the second-most in a game in program history.

WR Malik Pressley, So., FDU-Florham
Pressley set an FDU-Florham single-game record with five touchdown receptions, breaking his own mark in a 40-38 win vs. Misericordia. He caught nine passes for 221 yards in the win. Pressley now has 15 touchdown catches on the season.

Mayone had seven catches for a career-high 177 receiving yards in the Britons' win at Olivet. It was his third two-touchdown game of the season.

Defense

DE Aaron Karlen, Sr., UW-Stevens Point
Karlen set career-highs in tackles (12, 10 solo), sacks (4) and tackles for a loss (7.5) in a 31-3 win vs. UW-La Crosse. He also forced a fumble. Karlen helped hold UW-La Crosse to 17 yards on 38 rushes and 143 yards of total offense (2.3 yards per play).

DT Ryan Winter, Jr., St. Thomas
Winter had three sacks among his four tackles for loss to lead the Tommies' 38-14 win at No. 14-ranked Concordia-Moorhead. He finished with four solo and nine assisted tackles as the Cobbers (7-2) were limited to 179 net yards (21 rushing).

DT Korey Zavala, Sr., Hardin-Simmons
Zavala dominated the line of scrimmage with 14 tackles, including three tackles for loss and a sack in a 29-26 win vs. then-No. 3 Mary Hardin-Baylor.

DE Brian Khoury, Jr., Carnegie Mellon
Khoury led the Tartans' defense in a 73-19 victory over Thiel. He recorded three sacks for a loss of 26 yards while finishing with four total tackles, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery which he returned 34 yards, leading to the Tartans second score of the second half. It marked Khoury's sixth straight game with a sack and fourth with at least two sacks.

LB A.J. Licata, So., Alfred
Licata had 16 tackles (eight solo, two for loss and a sack) and an interception in Alfred's 35-13 win at Brockport. He spearheaded a defense that held Brockport standout tailback Dan Andrews, who came in averaging 157 yards rushing per contest, to just 56 yards on 15 carries.

LB Colton Ryan, Sr., Albright
Ryan intercepted two passes and returned one 100 yards for a touchdown helping to lead Albright to a 38-28 MAC victory over King's. He added four tackles, two solo, for the game.

LB Wallace Stephens, Jr., Morrisville State
Stephens led the Mustang defensive unit to a 42-28 victory over No. 20 Cortland on Saturday, registering nine total tackles. Of his nine, four were solo stops, three were for a loss of 11 yards, including two that were recorded as sacks. Stephens also registered a forced fumble and had a pass breakup in the win.

LB Kyle Burchett, Jr., Hiram
Burchett was all over the field in Hiram's 43-13 win over Allegheny. He finished with 14 tackles (11 solo) and helped limit the Gators to just 167 yards of total offense. In addition, he racked up 3.5 tackles for loss and forced his second fumble of the season.

CB Adrian Cannon, So., Case Western Reserve
Cannon joined this year's three-interception club in the Spartans' 34-16 win over Washington U. on Saturday. Cannon's first pick came on the Spartans' own 2-yard line, ending a potential scoring drive late in the first quarter. He added his second interception with 1:24 left in the first half at his own 48-yard line, and then helped secure the victory with a pick at the CWRU 26-yard line with 11:35 left in the fourth quarter. Cannon added four solo tackles and two pass breakups as the Spartans improved to 7-1. 

S Wes Cannonier, Sr., Wheaton (Ill.)
On Elmhurst's second drive of the football game, Cannonier picked off an Elmhurst pass at the Wehaton 37-yard line and returned it 63 yards for a touchdown to give Wheaton a 14-0 lead. In the fourth quarter, Cannonier picked off another Elmhurst pass as he helped preserve the shutout for the Wheaton defense. He also had a tackle for lost yardage of minus-6 yards in the second quarter to force an Elmhurst punt two plays later.

CB Brandon Fuentes, Sr., St. John Fisher
On Ithaca's first offensive play of the game, Fuentes intercepted a pass and went 44 yards for the touchdown return. The touchdown gave Fisher a 7-0 lead, as the Cardinals routed the Bombers, 34-0, marking Ithaca's first shutout since 2002. Fuentes also intercepted a pass in the second half.

Special teams

K Joshua Martinez, Sr., Howard Payne
Martinez hit a 39-yard field goal with three seconds remaining to defeat Louisiana College 18-16. The game-winner was his fourth field goal of the game, accounting for 12 of the Jackets' 18 points on the day leading Howard Payne to its first win of the season. Martinez hit field goals from 39, 22, 49 and 31 yards. =

P Justin Foley, Fr., Bates
Foley dropped seven of his nine punts inside the 20, at the Colby 2, 18, 15, 11, 10, 14 and 1 yard line. And those punts were needed, as Bates won at Colby 10-9, their first win in Waterville since 1999.

ST Michael Burgess, Sr., Maine Maritime
Burgess set a school single-game record with three blocked kicks in a 21-20 win over Curry. On Senior Day, he helped lead the Mariners to their first conference win of the year with three blocked kicks, including a block on an extra point attempt late in the second half, and a blocked field goal on what would have been the game-winner for the Colonels in the fourth quarter. Burgess is Maine Maritime's all-time leader in most career blocked kicks with 17, including five this season. 

RET Austen Lauricella, So., St. Lawrence
Lauricella returned a kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown for the Saints in a 41-21 win vs. WPI. It was the program's first kickoff return for a TD since 1999.
