Offensive Player of the Week - November 15, 2015
Matthew Minno

Matthew Minno
Middlebury College
Senior • Wide Receiver • Tallahassee, Fla.

Minno caught 10 passes for 159 yards with a pair of touchdowns at Tufts. His two touchdown receptions of 10 and 49 yards gave him 30 for his career, a new Middlebury record. He finishes the season leading the NESCAC in receptions (49), yards (820) and touchdown receptions (10). 

 

Defensive Player of the Week - November 15, 2015
Nick Sobczyk

Nick Sobczyk
Hamilton College
Junior • Defensive Lineman • Bethesda, Md.

Sobczyk led Hamilton to its first shutout in eight years, scoring a touchdown and making five tackles. His touchdown came on a fumble recovery in the end zone for the first defensive score for the Continentals since 2012. Sobczyk posted a key solo tackle at the Hamilton-12 in the first quarter that helped stall Bates’ deepest drive, which resulted in a missed field goal. He led a defense that held the Bobcats to 104 yards of total offense, including 48 rushing yards.

Special Teams Player of the Week - November 15, 2015
Willie Holmquist

Willie Holmquist
Tufts University
Junior • Punter/Kicker • Dix Hills, N.Y.

Holmquist kicked a 28-yard field goal giving Tufts a 17-7 lead in the third quarter. It was his 11th of the year, setting a new single-season record for the Jumbos. Holmquist was also 4-for-4 on PATs to account for seven of Tufts’ 31 points. He also averaged 38.6 yards on seven punts, four of which fell inside the 20-yard line. The victory gave Tufts a 6-2 record to mark just the second time since 1991 a Jumbo team has posted six or more wins.
