CAA Football's Player of the Week honorees for the second week of the 2013 season are featured below. A link to each school's release will be added to the player's name over the course of the week as releases become available.

Offensive Player of the Week: Omar Osbourne, Jr., RB, UAlbany
Osbourne finished with a career- and game-high 252 yards on the ground, including a pair of touchdowns, to lead the Great Danes to their second win in as many years over in-state foe Colgate. The junior, whose 252 yards on 35 carries mark the third-best rushing performance in program history, turned in his career-high rushing total in the first half alone as UAlbany moved to 1-1 on the season with Saturday's 37-34 win.

Defensive Player of the Week: Reuben Johnson, Sr., DB, Stony Brook
Johnson's presence was undoubtedly felt on defense on Saturday, with the senior securing two fumble recoveries turned eventual touchdowns as the Seawolves won their season-opener and first-ever conference contest, 24-0, over Rhode Island. Johnson added four tackles, including one for a loss of three yards, to help Stony Brook blank the Rams on the road.

Special Teams Player of the Week: Rob Jones, Sr., PR/KR, Delaware
Jones highlighted Saturday's first half for the Blue Hens with a 62-yard punt return for a touchdown that represented the first such score for Delaware since 2004. In addition to the junior's career-long return, he would tack on another two scores in the opening half as the Hens rolled to a 42-21 win over Delaware State in Saturday's Route 1 Rivalry showdown, a series in which UD has now won all five meetings. 

Rookie of the Week: Kendell Anderson, R-Fr., RB, William & Mary
Anderson broke open for a pair of touchdowns to pace the Tribe to a 31-7 win over Hampton on Saturday. The rookie racked up 97 yards on 14 rushes in a game that saw him score his first two career touchdowns.
