The Forester Coaching Staff announced the players of the week for their victory over Knox College. In a rare case, the coaches could not come to a conclusion between two school record tying performances on the offensive side of the board. For the first time in recent history, their will be "CO" Offensive MVP's.
Offense: Kevin Davis- Junior WR and Pete Scaffidi- Sophomore QB. Davis and Scaffidi connected for three scoring strikes in the victory. Davis' three touchdown recpetions in a game ties the school record, which was most recently accomplished by current wide recievers coach Dan Carter against Grinnell College in 2009. Scaffidi also threw a touchdown pass to sophomore Austin Sobey, giving him four touchdown passes on the day. This also tied the Forester mark for most touchdown passes in a game. This mark was most recently done in that same Grinnell game by current Forester Geoff Sobey. Davis finished the day with five catches for 113 yards. Scaffidi finished his relief appearance 7 of 20 passing for 152 yards and 4 TD's. Scaffidi was also the leading rusher for the Foresters with 12 carries for 102 yards. Davis and Scaffidi were high school teammates at South Elgin High School.
HM: to the entire offensive line, for their first 200 yard rushing, no sack performance of the year.
Defensively: Casey Flynn- Junior DL- Morristown, NJ. Flynn has an all-around solid performance for the Foresters recording 8 tackles, 1 Sack, 1 Forced Fumble, and 2.5 tackles for a loss. Flynn disrupted numerous Knox running plays by gaining superior penetration up field. Flynn's pressure on another pass attempt by the Prarie Fire led to freshman Eddie Dobernig's second interception of the day. Flynn played his high school football at Morristown High School in New Jersey.
HM: Eddie Dobernig (2 Interceptions), and Luke Butts (13 Tackles, 2 Pass Breakups)
Special Teams: Luke Butts- Junior DB- Warrensburg, IL. Butts had an active day on defense as well as special teams. The junior recorded three tackles on kickoffs alone. He also helped orchestrate a punt block unit that had is largest return yard average on the season, and provided tremendous pressure on the Knox punt team. Butts played his high school football at Warrensburg-Latham High School in Illinois.
HM: Domnick Campagna 49 yard field goal and averaged 60 yards per kickoff.
Scout Team: Max Goodrich- Freshman DL- Watervliet, MI. Goodrich, who is a defensive lineman, was asked to play offensive line due to a rash of injuries that hit the offensive line. Max performed at a very high level and made our defensive lineman much more successful in the game, than they had been in the previous two weeks. Max played his high school football at Watervliet High School in Michigan.
