Andrew Huck Named PFL Offensive Player of the Week

Butler quarterback Andrew Huck, who helped lead Butler to a 49-19 victory at Franklin, has been named Pioneer Football League Offensive Player of the Week for the second consecutive week.  He’s the first player to be honored twice by the PFL this season.

Huck completed 33 of 48 passes for 316 yards in just over three quarters of action in Butler’s victory at Franklin.  He also gained 45 yards on eight rushing attempts, and he scored on a five-yard run just four seconds into the fourth quarter - his final play of the game.  He finished with over 350 yards in total offense for the second straight week.

The sophomore signal caller, making just his second collegiate start, threw touchdown passes of three and seven yards to wide receiver Zach Watkins, eight yards to wide receiver Eddie McHale and nine yards to wide receiver Dan Bohrer.  The four touchdown passes gave him nine scoring aerials on the season.  His 33 completions were three shy of the Butler single game record and were the fourth-most by a quarterback in the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision this season.

After the first two weeks of action, Huck is leading the PFL in passing average (321.5 ypg), passing efficiency (181.8) and total offense (378.0 ypg).  He owns the league’s top two single game passing totals (327 yards vs. Albion and 316 yards vs. Franklin) and the league’s top two single game total offense marks (395 yards vs Albion and 361 yards vs. Franklin).
