Offensive Player of the Week
Michael Ruisch, So., QB, Susquehanna
Fogelsville, Pa.| Parkland
Ruisch is now 2-0 as the starting QB in games against Johns Hopkins, as he orchestrated a huge fourth-quarter comeback in Susquehanna's 28-27 road victory over the seventh-ranked Blue Jays. Ruisch took the team down the field three times in the fourth quarter and put up 21 points on the board, including engineering an 11-play, 75-yard drive in the final two minutes for the game-winning touchdown with eight seconds left. All three of SU's drives in the fourth were more than 70 yards, including the second drive being 10 plays for 99 yards after Hopkins' punt pinned them on their own one-yard line. Ruisch did it all Saturday as he completed a career-high 25 passes, had a season-best 42 attempts, threw for two touchdowns for the second game in a row, rushed seven times, and caught a pass for 27 yards.
