Butler junior wide receiver Dan Bohrer, who caught a school-record four touchdown passes in Butler's home game against Franklin on Saturday (Sept. 13), has been named Pioneer Football League Offensive Player of the Week. He's the first Butler player to earn PFL Offensive Player of the Week honors since 2002.
Bohrer grabbed a career-high 10 passes for a career-best 159 yards against Franklin. His touchdown receptions, all from quarterback Matt Kobli, covered 48 yards in the first quarter, 10 yards in the second period, eight yards in the third quarter and 13 yards in the fourth quarter. He had all of Butler's touchdowns in the 31-28 loss to the Grizzlies.
The four touchdown catches tied Butler's single game record, set by Dave Oliver against St. Joseph's in 1974, Bohrer's 10 receptions matched the ninth-highest single game total in Butler football history and tied the highest output in the PFL this year. His 159 receiving yards are the second-highest total in the PFL this year and the 14th-highest in the NCAA Division I FCS. Bohrer became one of just six FCS players to record four touchdowns in a game this season!
The last Butler player to be named PFL Offensive Player of the Week was Dale Jennings, who rushed for 194 yards and scored three touchdowns to lead the Bulldogs past Tiffin on Sept. 7, 2002.
