Sasek, Rhodes, Jordi and Mulumba Earn Week 10 Honors
RICHMOND, Va. (Nov. 4, 2013) – CAA Football's Player of the Week honorees for the tenth week of the 2013 season were announced on Monday. A link to each school's release will be added to the player's name over the course of the day as releases become available.
Offensive Player of the Week: Trevor Sasek, Sr., QB, Delaware
Sasek made the most of his first start of the season, leading No. 21 Delaware back from 21 points down in the fourth quarter to top No. 7 Towson, 32-31, on Saturday. The senior set career-highs with 34-of-46 passing for 330 yards and three scores, which included two touchdown tosses and the game-winning two point conversion over the final 48 seconds of play. Sasek's 34 completions also marked the third-most in school history.
Defensive Player of the Week: Luke Rhodes, Soph., LB, William & Mary
Rhodes receives his second weekly honor after highlighting William & Mary's dominant defensive performance in the team's 17-0 win over New Hampshire. The sophomore secured a game-high and tied a career-best with 13 tackles as the Tribe held the Wildcats to a season-low 312 yards in blanking them for the first time since 1995 – a span of 220 games.
Special Teams Player of the Week: Brandon Jordi, Soph., K, Richmond
Jordi finished with another career day to lead Richmond to its first conference win with a 27-10 Homecoming victory over UAlbany. The sophomore, who joined the Spiders after playing with the soccer program as a freshman, converted four of five field goal attempts to both match a career-best and tie a school single-game high. His 48-yarder at the close of the first half also equaled a career long.
Rookie of the Week: Christophe Mulumba, R-Fr., LB, Maine
Mulumba picks up his third conference honor after continued solid play in Maine's 19-14 win over Stony Brook on Saturday. The Jerry Rice Award Watch List member turned in a game-high 13 tackles to lead the Black Bears, who held the Seawolves to just 129 yards passing as they remain the league's lone unbeaten.
