The South Atlantic Conference announced its AstroTurf Football Players of the Week for games played during week 10 of the 2019 season. Lenoir-Rhyne quarterback Grayson Willingham was tabbed as the Offensive Player of the Week.
Willingham, a junior from Matthews, N.C., led the No. 7 Bears to a 45-31 win over UNC Pembroke last week. He connected on 12 of 16 passes (75 percent) for 303 yards and three touchdowns, including a 99-yard touchdown pass. Willingham became just the 44th player in NCAA Division II history to throw a 99-yard touchdown pass. He averaged 18.9 yards per attempt and had a passing efficiency of 296. This is Willingham's first offensive player of week honor of the season and his career.
Willingham and the Bears return to action on Saturday when they travel to Catawba for a noon kickoff.
