Bell Takes SAC Football Offensive Player of the Week Honors

ROCK HILL, SC -- Catawba junior running back George Bell (Fayetteville, NC) has been named the South Atlantic Conference Offensive Player of the Week for the week ending October 20.  Newberry’s Andre Moyd and Ryan Lukshis were named the defensive and special teams players, respectively.

Bell, a transfer from Virginia Tech University, delivered his first career 100-yard afternoon as he had 103 yards on 16 carries with three touchdowns in a 45-20 win over Wingate.  A 5-11, 210 pound graduate of Britt High School, Bell scored on runs on one, 11 and six yards to up his season total to 16 TD (15 rushing).

Bell ties a 72-year-old school record with his 15th rushing touchdown.  His 98 points this season is six shy of the 1948 school mark of 104 in one season.  Bell carried all three times in a 32-yard drive, getting a one-yard run for a 14-0 lead in the opening quarter.

He added an 11-yard jaunt in the second period for a 21-13 Tribe edge.  Bell scored on a six-yard run to push the Catawba lead to 31-13.  On the season, Bell has rushed 89 times for 488 yards and 15 rushing touchdowns.

For Newberry in a 17-14 win over Tusculum, Moyd returned an interception 92 yards for a touchdown to tie the game at 14-all in the third quarter.  Lukshis provided the game-winning points on a 32-yard field goal with 1.9 seconds remaining.
