Nance Earns Second ODAC Player of the Week Honors

FOREST, VA-Sophomore quarterback Nash Nance (Calhoun, GA/Tennessee) was named the ODAC Offensive Player of the Week for the second time this season as he led Hampden-Sydney to an ODAC season-best 68 points in the Tigers 68-24 win over Guilford on Saturday.

Nance completed 22-of-35 pass attempts for 309 yards and five touchdowns without an interception. He also threw for a pair of successful two-point conversions. Nance threw three touchdown passes in the first quarter as the Tigers jumped out to a 25-0 lead after the first 15 minutes of action. Nance's favorite target was again Holton Walker (Lynchburg, VA/Brookville), as the sophomore collected 10 passes for 170 yards and two of the first quarter touchdowns. The sophomore play caller accomplished all of this in just two and a half quarters of play.

Through eight games, Nance leads the ODAC with 22 touchdown passes and 2,097 yards through the air.

Nance and the Tigers return to action this Saturday as they face the Generals of Washington & Lee in Lexington on November 3. Kick off is set for 1:00 pm.
