AUSTINTOWN, Ohio -- Tyler Stoyle and Austin Neura have been named the Ohio Athletic Conference Players of the Week, as announced on Monday. Neura won the UW Oshkosh Invitational out of 141 runners, while Stoyle played a key role in the football team's overtime win.
Neura's 8K time of 25:23.2 was best by 14.5 seconds. The sophomore helped the team to a seventh place finish.
Neura and the rest of the cross country team will be back in action on Oct. 28 for the OAC Championships. Neura took home 12th at last year's race as a freshman. The Berg will be hosting this year's race, which will take place at Clinton Heights Golf Course.
Stoyle was 37 of 49 passing for 489 yards and three touchdowns in the 48-45 win over Otterbein. The 489 passing yards set a new career high, one Stoyle set in his first collegiate start when he threw for 388 yards. His longest throw -- a 73-yarder -- was a strike to Demetrius Magee on the run. The senior also rushed for 27 yards on five attempts.
Stoyle is no stranger to earning Player of the Week honors. This is Stoyle's third time being tabbed in his career, with the other two times following wins on Oct. 3, 2015 and Sept. 17, 2016.
The Student Princes (5-1, 4-1 OAC) travel to Marietta College (3-3, 2-3 OAC) on Saturday afternoon. Kickoff is scheduled for 1:30 p.m.
