    Senior | Wide Receiver

    Christian amassed 274 receiving yards – the most by an FCS receiver this season – in Marist’s 34-24 loss at Columbia, Saturday. He was responsible for each of the Red Foxes three touchdowns and had a hand on 274 of their 341 team offensive yards. He scored twice in the first quarter, opening with a 61-yard touchdown reception from Jacob Hallenbeck, then added a 12-yard touchdown pass from Mike Husni to give Marist a 14-10 lead. He would then give the Red Foxes a 21-17 lead with an 84-yard TD reception early in the third quarter. Christian had five receptions of 20-plus yards, including three receptions of 50-plus yards. His 274 receiving yards fell one yard shy of the PFL record set by Rob Giancola in 2003.

Clayberg’s five-tackle (four solo) outing included a pair of solo tackles for loss, including a solo sack on his first stop of the day. He led a Drake defensive effort that held Butler to 253 offensive yards, including a season-low 134 passing yards.

    Sophomore (RS) | Wide Receiver
    Cincinnati, Ohio

    Butz’ 51-yard punt return for a touchdown gave Dayton a lead it would not relinquish in a 53-20 PFL victory against Valparaiso, Saturday. His return came just minutes after Dayton gained a two-touchdown advantage and the Flyers defense forced a three-and-out on the ensuing Valparaiso possession. Butz finished with 118 all-purpose yards: 55 on punt returns, four on kick returns and 60 in receiving. All his receiving yards came on the final score of the first half, a 60-yard catch-and-carry that put Dayton ahead 31-13. Butz also had two special teams tackles on the day.
