    Nicolas broke off a 75-yard touchdown run for Jacksonville’s first points in what became their first PFL win of 2019, 52-45 in double overtime at Marist, Saturday. He finished the day with 147 yards on 17 carries for an impressive 8.6 yards per run.  After Marist scored on its opening drive, Jacksonville handed the ball to Nicolas on the first play of its ensuing drive and he rumbled 75 yards for the game-tying touchdown. He also broke off a 24-yard run later in the game for one of his six carries that resulted in a first down.

    Junior | Safety
    Fairborn, Ohio

    Easterling tied PFL records with three interceptions and a 100-yard pick six as Dayton rallied for a 46-29 PFL win at Drake, Saturday. His pick six could not come at a better time, denying Drake an opportunity to go ahead by 10 points at halftime and instead giving Dayton its first lead of the contest. The Flyers carried that momentum into the second half as they built a 17-point lead before Drake would respond again. Easterling led the Flyers with 15 tackles (10 solo) and amassed 138  yards on his three interceptions. He picked off passes on consecutive Drake drives – a five-yard return helping setup a Dayton scoring drive before he turned the tide with his 100-yard return. Easterling also picked off a pass with a 33-yard return to setup Dayton’s final scoring drive.

    Senior | Kicker
    Indianapolis, Indiana

    Bevelhimer made the most of a second chance, kicking a 38-yard field goal on the final play of the game to give Butler a 24-21 PFL victory against Valparaiso and ownership of the Hoosier Helmet. Butler used two quick strikes and a personal foul to set up Bevelhimer for a 42-yard attempt with two seconds remaining, but his kick fell short. However, Valparaiso was called for offsides and Bevelhimer did not miss on the now 38-yard attempt after time expired. He also converted on each of his three PATs and handled kickoff duties for the Bulldogs.
