(WINDSOR, ON) – Lancer quarterback Austin Kennedy has been named the OUA & CIS Football Offensive Player of the Week, as announced by the league this week.
Kennedy, a third-year business administration student from Windsor, was honoured on offence following one of the best season debuts in recent memory.
The 5-foot-10, 200-pound pivot broke his own single-game team records with 31 completions and 482 passing yards, and tied a Lancers’ mark with six touchdown passes in a 63-18 rout of Ottawa in front of a Labour Day home crowd of 4,133.
Kennedy, who went 31-of-41 without an interception on the afternoon, led the No. 7-ranked Lancers (1-0) to their best offensive output since a 63-22 win over Toronto in 2005, two points shy of the single-game club record.
Kennedy and the #7 Lancers will host the Guelph Gryphons this Saturday at 7:00pm at Alumni Field.
