Trexler Garners SAC Football Special Teams Player of Week Honor

ROCK HILL, SC -- Catawba kicker Thomas Trexler (Wilmington, NC/New Hanover HS) was one of three selected as South Atlantic Conference Football Players of the Week for the week ending October 18, 2009.  Trexler earned the Special Teams honors, while Newberry’s Brandon Gantt was named Offensive Player of the Week and teammate Ron Parker was named Defensive Player of the Week.

Trexler, a sophomore, made two first-half field goals (39 & 36 yards) and was perfect on five PAT attempts in the 41-27 win at Tusculum.  His first FG of 39 yards put the Indians on top 10-6 and his second, from 36 yards, tied the game at 13-13.  On the season, Trexler has made 5-of-8 field goals and is 23-of-25 on PAT's, totaling 38 points.  He also helped bottle Tusculum up on kickoffs as the Pioneers averaged starting on its own 25 on his eight kickoffs. Tusculum started inside its 20 on three occasions.

Gantt, a senior from Lexington, SC (Middle Tenn. St. Univ / Heathwood Hall HS), recorded 347 yards of offense in the 35-27 road win over Wingate on Saturday.  He completed 20-of-39 passes for a career-high 336 yards.  Parker, a senior from St. Helena Island, SC (Beaufort HS) had two interceptions, including a 54-yard pickoff return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter for what turned out to be the game-winning score for Newberry. He also made three tackles and had a total of three pass breakups.
