Andrew Huck Named PFL Offensive Player of the Week
Butler quarterback Andrew Huck, who helped lead
the Bulldogs to a come-from-behind victory at Morehead State, has
been named Pioneer Football League Offensive Player of the
Week. It’s the third time in four weeks that Huck has
been honored by the PFL.
Huck, making just his fourth collegiate start, threw four touchdown passes after intermission to help the Bulldogs overcome a 21-0 halftime deficit. He tossed scoring aerials of nine yards to Zach Watkins and two yards to Dan Bohrer in the third quarter, and then he tied the game with a seven-yard strike to Watkins in the fourth quarter. Huck finished the comeback with a 22-yard touchdown pass to Eddie McHale on the second play of the overtime period, giving the Bulldogs a 28-21 win.
The sophomore signal caller finished the game with 26 completions on 49 attempts for 208 yards. He was intercepted three times in the first half, but he bounced back to complete 16 of 25 passes with no interceptions for 143 yards after halftime!
Morehead State defensive back Derek Harkness, who had three pass interceptions against the Bulldogs, was named PFL Defensive Player of the Week, while Marist return specialist Jaquan Bryant, who had a 73-yard kickoff return to set up a touchdown, was tabbed PFL Special Teams Player of the Week.
