ODAC PLAYERS OF THE WEEK
OFFENSE: Washington and Lee running back Walker Brand, a senior from Roanoke, Va., added to his impressive total of early season rushing touchdowns in helping Washington and Lee improve to 2-1 on the season with a 24-14 triumph at Claremont-Mudd-Scripps. Brand entered the contest with the Stags tied for the NCAA Division III lead with seven rushing scores and he added two more in the Generals second win of the season. He carried the ball 21 times for a career-high 154 yards that included a pair of one-yard scoring bursts. He did not lose any yards on any one of his 21 carries and had four runs of 10 yards or longer. He setup his first score with a 49-yard sprint before pounding it it for an early 7-0 lead. Brand's second TD came on W&L's first possession of the second half where he capped a 14-play drive in which he carried the ball 11 times and accounted for 74 of the series' 93 yards. For the season, Brand has leads the ODAC with nine rushing scores and is second with 385 yards on the ground.
DEFENSE: Bridgewater cornerback Isaac Evans, a junior from Fredericksburg, Va., helped the Eagles limit Apprentice School to just 50 yards thru the air and 211 yards of offense overall in Bridgewater's 52-0 whitewashing of the Builders on Saturday. Evans not only helped BC post its first shutout since the 2013 season-opener (57-0 over St. Vincent), he put 12 points on the board with a pair of pick-sixes. He took back his first interception late in the first quarter, returning the ball 45 yards to paydirt for a 21-0 lead. He struck again at the outset of the second half, turning around his second interception 26 yards for a 31-0 advantage. Evans also contributed on special teams, blocking a 27-yard field goal attempt early in the second quarter. Evans' two pick-sixes give him a school-record four for his career.
