FOREST, VA-Senior quarterback Nash Nance (Calhoun, GA/Tennessee) was named the ODAC Offensive Player of the Week for the second time in three weeks after leading the Tigers to a 45-27 win over Shenandoah on Saturday.
Nance effectively avenged Hampden-Sydney's lone conference loss from a season ago and was responsible for five touchdowns in the Tigers' sixth straight win. He completed passes to seven different receivers as part of a 21-of-31, 381-yard performance. He threw three scoring passes, two to Holton Walker (Lynchburg, VA/Brookville) and a 70-yard effort to Michael Mey (Glen Allen, VA/VMI). The second touchdown play between Nance and Walker covered 72 yards. Nance also rushed for 58 yards before two sacks cost him 21 yards of offense. He registered a pair of short touchdown runs, one each in the third and fourth quarters.
For the season, Nance is second in the ODAC in passing yards (2,174), touchdowns (22) and yards per game (310.6). He's also run for eight touchdowns, tied for second-most in the conference.
Nance and the 22nd-ranked Tigers return to action Saturday, November 1, as they travel to Jopson Field to face the Eagles of Bridgewater College. Kickoff is set for 1:00 pm.
