Corey Spencer (Worcester State) – The former Arlington Catholic quarterback led the Lancers this past weekend to their fourth victory against Maine Maritime. And in that particular contest, Spencer recorded a season-best 298 passing yards with four touchdowns. He rushed for a score, too, and is now ranked 13th Nationally in pass efficiency and second in New England among Div. III schools with a rating of 154.09

Colton Chapple (Harvard) – The senior gunslinger completed 13-of-18 passes for 260 yards with five touchdowns (four throwing, one passing) in two quarters. Harvard scored on its first seven possessions to earn a convincing 52-3 victory against Holy Cross last Friday at Harvard Stadium.

Alex Amidon (Boston College) – The Eagles junior wide receiver earned this week’s Atlantic Coast Conference Receiver of the Week honors after he hauled in eight catches for 193 yards and two touchdowns against No. 17 Clemson University. Amidon’s receiving yards marked the most by an Eagle receiver since Gerard Phelan’s 226 receiving yards against Miami on November 23, 1984. His receiving yardage is also the third-highest receiving total in the program’s history.

Jaquawne Simpkins (American International College) – Simpkin’s was a spark for the Yellow Jackets defense against Assumption College, as he recorded a game-high 16 tackle (six solo) in his team’s third Northeast-10 Conference victory.

Tad Beuchert (Assumption College) – Beuchert is the second kicker to make our list and against AIC he was a perfect 3-for-3 on field goal attempts, as well as a 2-for-2 on PAT attempts.

Isaiah Voegeli (Merrimack College) – The senior wide receiver set a Northeast-10 Conference receiving yards record with 264 yards. Voegeli caught 17 passes and registered three touchdowns in his team’s big win against Pace University.

Max Lippe (Amherst College) – Against Bowdoin College, the sophomore quarterback finished the afternoon 18-of-22 for 141 yards with one touchdown. He also rushed for 33 yards and two scores in the Lord Jeffs second victory of the season.

Marcel Pitre (Tufts University) – The Jumbos junior halfback rushed for three scores in Tufts’ second loss of the season against Bates College. Pitre’s three scores marked the most by a Tufts running back since the 2001, according to the NESCAC Football Weekly Release.

Robert Baker (Becker College) – Against Husson College, the junior quarterback tossed a school record 491 yards in his team’s 34-7 victory. Baker threw for four touchdowns, while he ran for one score. Finally, he led the Hawks with 43 rushing yards, too.

Melikke Van Alstyne (Framingham State) – The junior halfback has been clutch for the Rams over the past few weeks, but was an enormous asset last Saturday with two fourth quarter touchdowns, as well as the game-winning score in overtime against Massachusetts Maritime. The win propelled the Rams to 4-1 on the season.
