CAA Football Issues Week Five Honors
RICHMOND, Va. (Sept. 30, 2013) – CAA Football's Player of the Week honorees for the fifth 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: John Robertson, Soph., QB, Villanova
Robertson led Villanova to its second-straight win and the 200th of head coach Andy Talley's tenure with Saturday's 35-6 victory over defending Ivy League champion Penn. The sophomore dual threat's skills were on full display against the Quakers, as he finished 19-of-28 for 266 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions to complement a ground game in which he racked up a 36-yard score and 132 total yards on 15 rushes.
Defensive Player of the Week: Stephon Robertson, Sr., LB, James Madison
CAA Football's Preseason Defensive Player of the Year picks up his second-consecutive weekly honor on the heels of a standout defensive effort against Delaware on Saturday. The senior turned in a career-high 16 tackles, including a career-best 4.5 for loss, in Newark and now leads the league with 61 stops on the year. Robertson would also come away with his third career interception in the loss.
Special Teams Player of the Week: Brad Prasky, Jr., P, New Hampshire
Prasky retained his place atop the nation's punting chart after sending five punts sailing 255 yards to highlight New Hampshire's special teams play against nationally-ranked Lehigh. The junior, who showcased a long punt of 62 yards in Saturday's setback, continues to lead all FCS punters with a 49.1-yard average through three games.
Rookie of the Week: Christophe Mulumba, R-Fr., LB, Maine
Mulumba receives his second rookie nod of the season after securing six tackles and his second career interception as Maine held the Spiders to just 65 rushing yards on Saturday. The redshirt freshman skied over the middle in the second quarter to secure the pick, which led to one of sophomore Nigel Jones' three scores on the day. Mulumba also added a pass breakup to help the Black Bears improve to 4-1 with their 28-21 win.
