Jon Turner's season-opening performance earned him a national honor. And the Washington & Jefferson defensive tackle is just a sophomore.

Turner, a Freeport graduate, was named to the Team of the Week after helping the Presidents to a 58-21 win over Wooster.

Turner (6-foot-2, 230 pounds) made nine tackles, including eight solo, and recorded two drive-halting sacks during his first career start.

In the team's second game, a 42-21 loss to St. John Fisher, Turner had five tackles.



Redshirt senior tight end Troy Hill (Valley) caught four passes for 44 yards, including his first touchdown reception of the season, in a 34-31 victory over Marshall.


Junior defensive end Cody McClelland (Freeport), sophomore lineman Reily Shane (Highlands) and junior middle linebacker Wes Schmidt (Kittanning) combined for 15 tackles, and McClelland had his first sack of the season in a 28-27 loss to Rochester.
