CAA Football's Week Four 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 set a slew of records in Old Dominion's thrilling 64-61 win over New Hampshire, completing 55-of-79 passes for 730 yards and five touchdowns to go with 65 rushing yards and a score on the ground. With Saturday's performance, the Monarch sophomore now owns Division I records with 791 yards of total offense and 730 yards passing while coming up just six yards shy of breaking college football's single-game passing mark. Heinicke also established new school records with 79 pass attempts, 55 completions, 730 passing yards and 791 total offensive yards.

Defensive Player of the Week:  Paul Worrilow, LB, Delaware
Worrilow turned in nine tackles, including two for a loss of 11 yards, to lead a solid defensive effort for Delaware on the road at William and Mary. The Hens senior also had a sack (nine yards) and forced a fumble that represented one of the team's five forced turnovers in Saturday's win.

Rookie of the Week:  John Robertson, QB, Villanova
Robertson earns his third-straight weekly honor after a strong day both in the air and on the ground as Villanova rolled to its 12th-straight victory over cross-town rival Penn. The Wildcats' rookie was an efficient 13-of-20 passing for 213 yards and a touchdown while also running in for a 26-yard score as part of his 55 rushing yards. Robertson's effort represented his first career 200-yard passing game and moved him to 3-0 as Villanova's starting quarterback. 

Special Teams Player of the Week:  Derrick Joseph, WR, Towson
Joseph returned a pair of kicks for 148 yards that included a game-tying 99-yard kickoff return that marked the second-longest kickoff return for a touchdown in school history. With his score, the sophomore became just the third player in school history to return more than one kickoff for a touchdown in his career. Joseph's second return was good for 49 yards and would set up another score in the second quarter.
