Lenoir-Rhyne Sweeps SAC Football Player of the Week Awards

The South Atlantic Conference announced its AstroTurf Football Players of the Week for games played during the third week of the spring season. Lenoir-Rhyne quarterback Grayson Willingham was tabbed as the Offensive Player of the Week, while Lenoir-Rhyne linebacker Jon Ross Maye was named the Defensive Player of the Week, and Lenoir-Rhyne kicker Chase Allbaugh picked up Special Teams Player of the Week honors.

Willingham, a senior from Matthews, N.C., connected on 22 of 27 passes (81.5 percent) throwing for 309 yards and two touchdowns in the Bears’ 44-13 win over Barton College.

Maye, a freshman from Johns Creek, Ga., led the Bears to a 44-13 win over Barton. He made 11 tackles, including eight solo tackles, three tackles for loss, and a sack. He also blocked a Barton field goal attempt.

Allbaugh, a senior from Tallahassee, Fla., converted all three of his field goal attempts and all four of his extra point attempts, accounting for 13 of Lenoir-Rhyne’s 44 points in the Bears’ win over Barton last week. Allbaugh has now converted 104 straight extra point attempts without a miss.
