Stanek, Slezak, Moore named CCIW Football Players of the Week

NAPERVILLE, Ill. – North Central's Spencer Stanek and Nick Slezak,
along with North Park's Noah Moore were named the College Conference
of Illinois & Wisconsin (CCIW) Football Players of the Week Monday.

Stanek, a senior quarterback from Mokena, Illinois and Lincoln-Way
East High School (Economics/Finance major), earned player of the week
honors for the fifth time this season after leading the Cardinals to a
35-16 victory at Wheaton on Saturday. The win clinched a share of
North Central's eighth-straight CCIW title as Stanek was 21-of-29
passing for 242 yards and five touchdown passes against the Thunder.
Stanek has completed at least 70 percent of his passes in
five-straight games and threw multiple TD passes for the
eighth-straight game.

Slezak, a senior linebacker from Warrenville, Illinois and Glenbard
South High School (Mathematics major), totaled 12 tackles (nine solo)
and three tackles-for-loss against Wheaton on Saturday. He led the
Cardinals in both categories as the defense held Wheaton to 63 yards,
five first downs and 1-of-7 on third down conversions in the second
half.

Moore, a sophomore from Chesterfield, Virginia and Matoca High School
(Criminal Justice major), kicked a 23-yard field goal with nine
seconds remaining to lead North Park to a 35-32 win over Millikin on
Saturday. It was the Vikings' first win against the Big Blue since
1971 and only the fifth in the 54-year history of the series. Moore
was also 2-of-3 on PATs and had six kickoffs for 252 yards (42.0
average).
