Offensively, quarterback Rocky Lombardi gets one of the nods as he had 323 yards passing with three touchdowns. Receiver Ricky White was able to share the other nod as he had eight receptions for 196 yards and a touchdown.
On special teams, the two players of the week went to linebacker Chase Kline and punter Bryce Baringer. Kline had three tackles on special teams while Baringer had a 54 yard average on his punts with a long of 78.
