Heinicke, Taylor, Baner and Robertson Log CAA Football Weekly Honors
CAA Football's Week third Player of the Week honorees (click player's name to be taken to his program's release):
Offensive Player of the Week: Taylor Heinicke, QB, Old Dominion
Heinicke racked up 486 passing yards and seven touchdowns on a 21-of-29 performance against Campbell. The quarterback's passing yards were the 10th-highest total in CAA Football history, while his seven TD-passes were one shy from equaling the league mark last done in 2004.
Defensive Player of the Week: Cooper Taylor, DB, Richmond
Taylor helped the Spiders record their second-straight win by hauling in two interceptions, a 12-yarder and a 35-yarder which went for a touchdown, against VMI. The safety also tallied five tackles on the day as Richmond's defense limited the Keydets to just 197 total yards.
Rookie of the Week: John Robertson, QB, Villanova
Robertson, now a two-time Rookie of the Week honoree, accounted for 234 yards of total offense in helping Villanova earn its first league win of 2012. The freshman completed 14-of-27 passes for 171 yards and carried the ball 11 times for 63 yards and score.
Special Teams Player of the Week: Sean Baner, PK, Delaware
Baner was true on all four of his field goal attempts as well as a PAT in a victory over Bucknell. Baner's field-goal kicking performance, which equaled his own school record, included distances of 20, 21, 32 and a season-best 41 yards.
