Georgetown College football improved to 7-3 and 5-0 with at least a share of the Mid-South Conference East Divisional championship this past Saturday with a 31-7 win over University of the Cumberlands.
Along the way the No. 17 Tigers also swept the weekly MSC East Divisional honors.
Cade O'Bryan dominated with 12 tackles – six solo. He 3.5 tackles for loss, 2.5 of those were sacks, as he helped force the Patriots back 17 yards. He received his first MSC East Divisional Defensive Player of the Week honors of the season and his career.
JJ Jude rushed 18 times for 130 yards and a touchdown. He averaged 7.2 yards per carry Saturday helping him earn his third MSC East Divisional Offensive Player of the Week honor for the season and his career.
Dylan Haraway came up solid all day and at the end of the game put the exclamation on the victory. The junior blocked UC's punt attempt late in the fourth quarter deep in the visitor's territory. The ball bounded into the end zone where teammate Blake Ellis fell on it for the final score of the game.
For his efforts, Haraway was named MSC East Divisional Special Teams Player of the Week – his first of the season and his career.
Georgetown returns to action 1:30 pm Saturday hoping to clinch the East Division outright with a win over University of Pikeville on Senior Day. The Bears are 4-1 in the East.
