Ivy League Weekly Awards



From the Ivy League...

OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Yale senior wide receiver/defensive back Deon Randall (San Diego) wowed the crowd in his first game at the Yale Bowl in nearly two years with a four-touchdown performance in the Bulldogs' 38-23 win over Cornell. Randall hauled in three touchdowns as part of a career day of 11 catches and 148 yards and added a fourth score on the ground. All four of his touchdowns came consecutively in the second half to break open a tie game at halftime. He also got his first collegiate action at defensive back, recording a solo stop and deflecting a pass.

DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Harvard junior defensive end Zach Hodges (Atlanta) was a presence up front all night for the Crimson in a 41-23 win over Brown. Hodges was in the Bears' backfield three times with three tackles for a loss for seven yards, including one sack. He added an interception and returned it for nine yards in the third quarter. Hodges finished the night with four tackles and a quarterback hurry in the victory.

SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Harvard senior placekicker David Mothander (San Juan Capistrano, Calif.) made all five PAT attempts and drilled two field goals, both from 36 yards out, finishing with 11 points in the Crimson’s win over Brown. Mothander now has 220 points in his career, which moves him to second on Harvard’s all-time career scoring list.

ROOKIE OF THE WEEK
Yale freshman defensive back Robert Ries (Cincinnati) played well in his first collegiate game at the Yale Bowl with nine tackles and his first career interception in the Bulldogs' Ivy League-opening victory over Cornell. Ries' nine tackles were second highest on the team and four of his nine stops were solo efforts. He added a pass breakup in the win.

Seems a bit odd that Furman didn't make the honor roll with the kind of numbers he put up - 80.55% completion, 350+ yds, 3 TD passes and one running. Great game for Randall and offensive player of the week well deserved, but someone had to get him the ball.
