Springfield, Mass. - September 13, 2017 - The weekly awards continued to roll in for Springfield College's Jordan Wilcox (Saratoga Springs, N.Y.) as he was named to the D3football.com National Team of the Week.
The Finance major was one of two running backs selected to the weekly honor roll. Dating back to 1999, the honor roll recognizes the top individual performance at each position, drawn from nominations provided by schools.
Last Saturday, Wilcox helped lead Springfield to a 28-8 win vs. Kean to improve to 2-0 for the first time since 2013. He racked up a career-best up 223 yards on 27 carries, averaging 8.3 per carry, and rushed for a pair of touchdowns, including a 51-yarder in the first quarter. He also added a touchdown reception of eight yards. Wilcox currently ranks fourth in the nation in total rushing yards (371), fifth in rushing yards per game (185.5), and is a key reason why Springfield ranks second in Division III in team rushing (383.0).
