Jon Treloar Receives PFL Recognition

INDIANAPOLIS, IND. -- Sophomore Jon Treloar, who turned in a career-best scoring performance in Butler's record victory over Valparaiso, has been named Pioneer Football League Co-Special Teams Player of the Week.  The Butler placekicker shared the league's weekly honor with Davidson return specialist Garrett Diehl.

Treloar connected on a school-record nine PAT kicks and one field goal in Butler's 72-12 win against the Crusaders.  The nine PATs erased the previous Butler single game record of eight that Treloar shared with Bob Ligda (1974) and Tim Witmer (1989) and boosted the second-year kicker's season total for PATs to a school-record 47.  Jordan Quiroz set the previous Butler record of 42 PATs in 2008.  

In addition to his PATs, Treloar also booted a 34-yard field goal in the win.  It was his eighth field goal in eight attempts this season and it matched his longest kick of the year.  Treloar's 12 points in the victory also set a Butler single game record for kick scoring.

Butler's 72 points in the PFL win were the most by the Bulldogs since 1921, when the Indianapolis school defeated Hanover, 122-6.

Diehl had a 92-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in Davidson's 26-13 loss to Stetson.  It was the first kickoff return for a touchdown by a Davidson player in five seasons.

Butler (8-3, 6-1 PFL) will try to clinch its second consecutive PFL championship when it travels to Morehead State on Saturday, Nov. 16.  The Bulldogs' final regular season game will start at 1 p.m. (ET) at Jayne Stadium.
