Games of Sept. 23, 2017

Offense

QB Sam Sasso, Sr., Simpson

The alliterative signal-caller threw four touchdown passes for the third consecutive game as Simpson won 38-33 at defending IIAC champion Coe. Sasso was 27-for-37 passing for 340 yards and the interception he threw required such an amazing job by the defense that it was named the D3football.com Play of the Week. On Simpson's two fourth-quarter touchdown drives, he converted on third-and-9, third-and-8, third-and-15 and third-and-6.

OL Cameron Mika, Colin Reese, Thomas Graham, Braden Hogue, Blake Gamble, Westminster (Pa.)

RB Sean Bowman
Jr., Averett

Bowman set career-highs of 227 net rushing yards, five touchdowns and 36 carries in a 35-6 win vs. Methodist. He accounted for more than half of Averett's 403 yards of total offense on his own.

RB Joey Valdivia

Sr., Hartwick

Garcia had career highs of 14 catches and 271 yards in a 24-21 win vs. St. John Fisher, the first for the Hawks over the Cardinals since 2008. He caught three touchdown passes, one for 21 yards to give the Hawks the lead with just over three minutes left.

WR Sam Markham
Sr., Central

Markham needed just eight grabs to reach 171 yards, thanks to a 74-yard TD and another 58-yard catch. He also had a 4-yard TD in the second half of a 52-27 home win vs. Nebraska Wesleyan.

WR Xavier Gray
Sr., East Texas Baptist

Gray had a career-high 163 yards receiving on five receptions and two TDs in a 79-40 win vs. Belhaven. He scored with 5:30 to go in the first quarter to put ETBU up 14-7 on a 25-yard reception and then had a 91-yard TD reception in the second to make it 34-20.

LB Alex West
So., Brockport

West recorded eight tackles (six solo, two assisted), including one tackle for a loss in a 28-14 win vs. Utica. He also had a huge interception in the second quarter which he returned 18 yards, giving the Golden Eagles prime field position at the Utica 14.

LB Cole Murphy
Sr., Birmingham-Southern

Murphy had seven tackles, six solo, including a sack for a loss of 9 yards. He also broke up one pass and had an interception, the first of his career.

 

CB Donovan Walker

On his 21st birthday, Warden picked off a pair of passes, returning one for a score. He finished with five tackles, four of them solo.

P Tyler Kohman, Sr.
Carnegie Mellon

Kohman recorded six punts for an average of 46.7 yards per punt while placing four inside the Saints 20-yard line, including two that fell inside the 5-yard line and another on the 7-yard line. Three of the senior's punts were longer than 50 yards with a long of 57 in a 37-17 win vs. Thomas More.
