Duke of The Game: Defense

Jordan Riley was a welcomed addition back to the Dukes defense. He controlled the line of scrimmage and at one point in the second half recorded four consecutive tackles. He also was responsible for a blocked punt and a sack. His presence helped make the rest of the Dukes defense even more effective, which makes him this week’s defensive player of the game.

Dukes of The Game: Offense

Bo Bassindale and the offensive line of George Beatty, Carson KimpleDevin DodulikJacob RossMark MoraskiJacob Hawig, and Chris Caspari are this week’s Dukes of the Game on offense. When you lose your conference leading quarterback early in the first quarter, and shift your conference leading receiver to fill in for him, you know you’re going to need somebody to stand up and carry the load. Junior running back Bo Bassindale ran the ball 28 times for 169 yards and 2 touchdowns behind the blocking efforts of his offensive line.

Only Kimple and Caspari are returning starters on this young offensive line, who continues to improve each week and who ultimately, along with Bassindale, made the difference in the game.
