USF’s Ferrer Honored By MSFA

FORT WAYNE, Ind. – University of Saint Francis quarterback Nick Ferrer has been selected Mid-States Football Association Mideast League Offensive Player of the Week for the second week in a row after the sophomore led the 17th-ranked Cougars to a 45-3 win over Trinity International University on Saturday, Sept. 19. 12.

 

Ferrer (Westfield, IN / Westfield H.S.) threw for four touchdowns and 313 yards spearheading USF to its third consecutive win to start the season, USF’s best start since 2011. Ferrer connected on 67 percent of his passes (20-for-30) and TDs 15, 83, 13 and five yards. In just his sixth career start, the sophomore threw for 162 yards and three TD in the third quarter against TIU (2-1).

 

Ferrer is the first USF QB to win the weekly honor in back-to-back weeks since David Yoder did it in 2013. It also the 90th time USF has had a conference player of the week, all under the direction of head coach Kevin Donley.

This is LUB’s first season in the MSFA and this will be the first Kevin Donley – Dale Carlson matchup since 2008 when USF defeated Ohio Dominican 35-0.
