Players of the Week - Ripon

Offense: Senior WR Mike Peters (Buffalo, NY) Mike had a solid game for the Foresters as he hauled in 5 receptions for 104 yards and a touchdown. His 20.8 yards per catch was the fifth highest total in school history.

Defense: Senior LB Bryce Jones (Dysart, AZ) Bryce had two tackles for a loss, and helped the Forester defense hold the Ripon run game over 100 yards below their per game average.

Special Teams Player of the Week: Junior, Returner, Joey Kropp (Rolling Meadows, IL) Joey had a great day for the Foresters and recorded the first punt return for a touchdown in the first half to give the Foresters a 7-0 lead. Kropp's 41 yard TD return was his second longest return of the day as he also had a 50 yard kickoff return as well. He topped the century mark in return yards for the day as well.

Lineman of the Week: Junior NG, Ramel Samuel (Phoenix, AZ) Ramel was a stout force in the middle and forced much of the Ripon run game to go off tackle. Ramel made it possible for others to make many of the tackles they did by keeping blockers off of them.

Scout Player of the Week: Sophomore WR Jared Russ (Horseheads, NY) - Jared served the team as the option QB for the week and did a great job preparing the Forester Defense for the option.
