BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – Joe Rollins (Temple Hills, Md./Surrattsville), a sophomore on the McDaniel football team, and Sam Cox (Towson, Md./Towson), a senior, have been named to the Team of the Week for the week of Sept. 10.

Rollins, a running back who was also named Centennial Conference (CC) Offensive Player of the Week and a BSN Athlete of the Week, led the Green Terror (1-1, 1-0 CC) to a 35-14 win over Moravian in the CC opener, matching the program record with 311 yards rushing. He carried the ball 26 times and found the end zone three times.

Cox, a defensive lineman, recorded a program-record 5.0 sacks, forcing fumbles on two of them. He finished with nine total tackles – all solo stops. Among those nine tackles were six tackles for loss, which tied the program record.

The Green Terror returns to action at Muhlenberg on Saturday. Game time is 2 p.m.
