[2020] Week 6 MAC Players of the Week

1 post in this topic



Offensive :mac: Player of the Week: QB Benjamin Hanson, Toledo  :toledo: 22 of 30 for 287 yards, 3 TD, 1 INT (W at Bowling Green)



This kind of performance is starting to become old hat for the Toledo signal-caller; Hanson has shown up here three out of the four games he's played so far this season.  It was good he played up to his usual standards, because the Rockets needed all that and then some to shake off a dogged Bowling Green squad.  With an incredible 74.7% completion rate and a tidy 10/2 TD/INT ratio on the season, Hanson leads the MAC in QBR with a 180.53 rating and is key to Toledo's current and future aspirations.  


Defensive :mac: Player of the Week: ILB Kameron McCall, Akron :zips: 1 INT, 8 Tackles (W at Indiana)



In contrast to Hanson's frequent visits to this list, this is McCall's first POTW award.  But it doesn't mean that he was any less important to his team's victory against Big Ten Twelve Eleven Fourteen eleventybillion B1G member Indiana.  McCall was cleaning up everywhere on the field while also picking off a pass for the undefeated Zips.  McCall is one of the more unheralded players on Akron's defense, so good on him for stepping up and proving himself a vital member of their stop squad!



Special Teams :mac: Player of the Week: K Timmy Wilhelm, Ohio :ohio:  3/3 FGs (made 46, 27, 35), 2/2 XP (W vs. Western Kentucky)



In contrast to the other two selections for this week's Players of the er, Week, this race was a complete shutout.  No one in the third phase of the game had a more impressive day than Ohio's own Timmy Wilhelm.  The senior stayed perfect on the year, including kicking a season-long 46-yarder among his three field goals.  Perhaps even more impressive is that he tied MAC legend Emmanuel Fields for the most POTW awards in MAC history with eight.  What a career Wilhelm has had with the Bobcats.


Congratulations to all the winners!
