PIONEERS EARN 2 NATIONAL WEEKLY AWARDS FROM D3FOOTBALL.COM
GRINNELL, Iowa – Grinnell College’s 21-7 victory over Monmouth College on Saturday proved to be twice as nice for the Pioneers when it came to weekly awards from D3football.com.
Wide receiver Cody Weber ’13 was named to the D3football.com Team of the Week, while a second-quarter touchdown pass from quarterback Sam Poulos ’16 to Weber was tabbed Play of the Week.
The Play of the Week officially covered only 12 yards, but in reality was much more as Poulos scrambled and evaded Fighting Scot defenders before throwing against his body to find Weber in the back of the end zone for a score that would put the Pioneers ahead to stay.
By the time the play was completed, nearly 10 seconds had rolled off the clock.
Poulos finished the game with 240 passing yards and three scores, completing 28-of-35 aerials.
Weber was named to the Team of the Week after catching 15 passes and scoring twice in the victory. He finished with a game-high 165 receiving yards and, as of last week, ranked fifth nationally in receptions per game and 12th in receiving yards a contest.
