MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. --- Moravian College sophomore wide receiver Nick Petros has been selected to the D3football.com Team of the Week presented by Scoutware for Week 5 of the 2018 NCAA Division III season for Petros' performance in the Greyhounds' 59-23 win over Gettysburg College this past Saturday.
Petros, who was honored as the Centennial Conference Offensive Player of the Week on Sunday, had school records of 241 receiving yards and four receiving touchdowns in the first half while making just six catches in the contest. He reached the end zone on passes of 69, 78, 34 and 33 yards. Petros' 40.2 yards per reception was also a Moravian record while his 241 receiving yards were the 10th most in a game in Centennial Conference history.
Petros also serves as Moravian's punter, holder and kick returner, and he punted four times versus Gettysburg for an average of 31.5 yards with one inside the 20-yard line, held for all of senior Jon Miller's school-record eight extra points and a field goal, and returned three kickoffs for 50 yards.
"Nick has a lot of big play capabilities that he showed on Saturday," stated Head Coach Jeff Pukszyn. "He is a very good athlete, a hard competitor and works extremely hard to help our offense and our special teams to be the best that then can. Nick and the entire team put in hard work all of last week, and that was evident in the way that they played against Gettysburg."
The Greyhounds are slated to return to action on Saturday, October 6 when the team travels to Susquehanna University for a Centennial Conference contest in Selinsgrove with kickoff set for 1:00 p.m.
