Washington & Jefferson College senior defensive end Frank Gigler, a Burrell graduate, was named to the D3football.com National Team of the Week.
Gigler recorded six tackles, including four for loss and two sacks, as W&J (3-2, 2-1) edged Westminster, 20-16, on Saturday in a Division III Presidents' Athletic Conference game.
This season, the 6-foot-2, 250-pound Gigler has 22 tackles, including six behind the line of scrimmage, as well as 2 1/2 sacks and a fumble recovery.
In 25 career games, Gigler has 78 tackles (23 for loss) and 12 sacks.
Last month, Gigler was named the conference's male Student-Athlete Advisory Committee Scholar-Athlete of the Month. He is a pre-physical therapy major and holds a 3.69 grade-point average.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
