The Mid-American Conference announced their players of the week for this week's past games. Twinsburg's Matt Weller was among those honored.
Offensive Player of the Week: Bowling Green WR Eugene Cooper
Senior wide receiver Eugene Cooper (Mount Vernon, N.Y.) career-highs in catches (6), yards (134) and touchdowns (4) in the Falcons' 58-13 win over Morgan State. Cooper's four receiving touchdowns tied a school record for touchdown catches in a single game. The last Falcon to record such a feat was Jeff Groth in 1978 versus Grand Valley State.
Defensive Player of the Week: Buffalo LB Khalil Mack
Sophomore linebacker Khalil Mack (Fort Pierce, Fla.) was a one-man wrecking crew for the Bulls, recording a team-best eight tackles (four solos), 3.5 tackles for loss, a sack, two forced fumbles, an interception and three quarterback hurries. Mack's second forced fumble snuffed out a drive at the UB three-yard line and led to a UB turnover. Mack helped limit a Stony Brook offense that had 410 yards last week at UEP to just 298 yards.
Special Teams Player of the Week: Ohio K Matt Weller
Junior kicker Matt Weller (Twinsburg, Ohio) was 3-of-4 on field goals and a perfect 3-for-3 on extra points Saturday night against Gardner-Webb. Weller's longest field goal came from 45 yards out. His lone miss was from 53-yards midway through the third quarter.
Offensive Player of the Week: Toledo WR Eric Page
Junior wide receiver Eric Page (Toledo, Ohio) caught 12 passes for 145 yards and 2 touchdowns in Toledo's 27-22 loss at No. 15 ranked Ohio State. Page has now caught a touchdown pass in seven of the last eight games. Page also threw for a two-point conversion.
Defensive Player of the Week: Eastern Michigan LB Marcus English
Senior linebacker Marcus English (Dayton, Ohio) posted a team-best 10 tackles in a 14-7 win over Alabama State. English added 3.5 tackles for a loss, one sack and was part of a defense that held the Hornets to minus-13 yards rushing in the contest to break the EMU record for fewest rushing yards allowed in a contest.
