Offensive Player of the Week

LUKE HEINSOHN, Washington and Lee, Junior, Running Back

Heinsohn, a junior from Charlottesville, Va., helped lead Washington and Lee to a 63-0 win over Guilford on Saturday by rushing for a season-high 167 yards and a career-high four touchdowns on just 12 carries. Heinsohn averaged 13.9 yards per carry, scoring on touchdown runs of 2 yards, 4 yards, 23 yards and 63 yards. For the season, Heinsohn has rushed for 423 yards and an ODAC-high eight touchdowns on 66 carries. The 2010 ODAC rushing champion, Heinsohn's 423 yards are currently third in the conference.

Defensive Player of the Week

DEVAN SPROLES, Emory & Henry, Junior, Linebacker

Sproles, a junior from Norton, Va., helped the Emory & Henry defense hold Randolph-Macon to just 10 points as E&H opened its ODAC schedule with a 17-10 win. Sproles recorded 10 or more tackles for the third straight week, and now leads the ODAC with 53 total tackles. He made 11 stops from his linebacker position, but also intercepted a pair of passes. His second interception preserved a 3-0 second quarter lead and perhaps the flow of the rest of the game as he intercepted a pass in the Wasps' end zone with R-MC on the three-yard line. E&H scored on the ensuing drive, opening up a 10-0 advantage.

Team News and Notes

BRIDGEWATER rolled up its most points against an opponent since a 76-point output in 2007 at home against Guilford with a 57-13 win over visiting Apprentice. Senior running back Anthony Carter dashed for 152 yards on 18 carries and added two touchdown runs to pace the offense. Quarterback Carlos Gonzalez went 8-of-17 for 144 yards and three touchdown passes as the Eagles recovered in a big way from their lethargic effort a week ago.  Bridgewater's defense came up big on the day, forcing three Apprentice turnovers in a 57-13 victory. Bridgewater sacked the Apprentice quarterback on six occasions and also posted 13 tackles for a loss. The Eagles held the Builders to 2-of-13 on third down and to just over 300 total yards of offense.  Danny Grogg led the unit with four tackles, one sack, and a forced fumble and recovery.

NEXT WEEK: at Hampden-Sydney (4-1, 1-0 ODAC) - 1:00 p.m.
Hampden-Sydney and Bridgewater will meet for the 68th time this Saturday for Hampden-Sydney’s Homecoming. While the Tigers are 1-0 in ODAC play, Saturday will mark the Eagles’ conference opener. The Tigers have taken the last four meetings in the series, including last year’s 24-17 win at Bridgewater. The last time these two teams met at Everett Stadium was in 2009, when the Tigers blanked the Eagles 19-0.  The last time Bridgewater scored a victory in Hampden-Sydney was in 2005 via a 31-24 decision.
 
CATHOLIC receiver Alonzo Cooke hauled in 8 passes for 112 yards and CUA’s only two touchdowns on Saturday at Hampden-Sydney, but it wasn't enough in a 31-17 loss to the Tigers.  It was Cooke’s second 100-yard receiving day of the season.  Cooke caught TD passes of 49 and 12 yards and averaged 14.0 yards per catch.  Greg Cordivari completed 33 of 52 passes for 288 yards, but was intercepted four times.  Mike Pitsenberger gained 73 yards on 12 carries (6.1 average) and also caught five passes.  CUA committed a season-high 13 penalties, 10 more than HSC.  CUA’s defense held HSC to 7 points in the first half, but the Tigers scored 24 points in the third quarter to pull away.  HSC’s 433 yards of total offense is the most the Cardinals have allowed this season. Conor Stueckler led the CUA defense with 11 total tackles, including 1 for loss, as well as one sack and a pass breakup.  The 11 tackles is a season-high and tied his career-high, while the sack was his first of the season and first since the second game of the 2010 season.  CUA’s first TD of the day was set up by a sack and forced fumble by James Fucillo.  Kirk Kasa recovered the fumble.  Miniard Culpepper finished with eight tackles for the Cardinals, and was one of eight CUA players with at least five tackles.
