ROCK HILL, S.C. (TheSAC.com) -- The South Atlantic Conference announced its AstroTurf Football Players of the Week for games played Oct. 22 through Oct. 28.  Catawba quarterback Ken Avent III was named Offensive Player of the Week, while Lenoir-Rhyne linebacker Sherrod Williams was named the Defensive Player of the Week, and Wingate place kicker McLean Robertson was named Special Teams Player of the Week.
 
Avent, a freshman from Faison, N.C., had an outstanding game as he led the Catawba Indians to a 43-6 win over Limestone last week. The quarterback scored five touchdowns, throwing for two and rushing for three more. He completed 18-of-26 passes for a career-high 360 yards, while rushing for 71 yards. This is Avent’s first Player of the Week honor this season.
 
Williams, a junior from Edison, Ga., led the No. 21 Bears to their eighth consecutive victory with a 51-3 win over UNC Pembroke last week. He was a defensive force; totaling seven tackles, including four solo tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Williams also snagged an interception and returned it 23 yards for a touchdown. This is Williams’s second Defensive Player of the Week accolade this season.
 
Robertson, a sophomore from Lexington, S.C., helped guide the Bulldogs to a 31-17 win over Newberry. He connected on all four of his PATs, while also nailing a 35-yard field goal. Robertson also had three of his four kick-offs for touchbacks, with all four landing in the end zone. This is Robertson’s first Player of the Week award of the season.
