Double It Up
Anthony Crawley has recorded his first two double-digit tackle games in the last two outings. He recorded 12 stops against Dickinson on Oct. 6 before also making 12 stops at Muhlenberg last Saturday. He is currently fourth on the team with 38 tackles for the year.
Short Field Woes
Overall, opponents are averaging a starting field position of the 34.3-yard line against McDaniel this season. However, the defense has been forced to start in plus-territory on 14 occasions, including eight times in the last three games. Of those 14 dives in which opponents have had fewer than 50 yards to reach the end zone, four have resulted in touchdowns and one additional drive has resulted in a field goal, including three touchdowns and a field goal in the last two contests. In total, the defense has allowed 17 touchdowns in 101 opponent possessions.
Hitting the Century Mark
Isaac Murray rushed for his first career 100-yard game last week at Muhlenberg. He averaged 8.6 yards on his 16 carries. He ripped off a pair of big runs. He had a 37-yarder on the first play of the Green Terror’s first-quarter field-goal drive. In the third quarter, he busted out for a 63-yard run. That run was McDaniel’s longest play of the season and the longest run since Joe Rollins had a 77-yarder against Susquehanna on Nov. 9, 2013.
Many Happy Returns
Nah’shon Godfrey notched his first collegiate interception return for a touchdown on Saturday. On his first career interception, the junior snagged the ball and took it the house 37 yards down the sideline for his first score. It was the Green Terror’s first interception returned for a touchdown since Keegan Romanoff opened the 2016 season with a 30-yard return for a score at Catholic. It was the second straight game that McDaniel had scored a non-offensive touchdown.
