DOVER, Del. - Wesley College football junior running back Jamar Baynard has been selected as the Wolverine of the Week for his effort in Wesley's 44-24 win over Christopher Newport this weekend.
Baynard ran the ball for 179 yards and three touchdowns, shaking off several would-be CNU tacklers on his way to the end zone. The running back toted the ball 26 times and caught a pair of passes as the Wolverines rolled the Captains. In two games this season, Baynard has already rushed for 315 yards and should continue to see the lion's share of the football in a high-powered Wesley offense.
Baynard's 157.5 yards rushing per game lead the New Jersey Athletic Conference. Among all rushers with 20 or more carries, Baynard's 7.2 yards per carry are also the most in the conference.
Baynard and the Wolverines will travel to Chicago this weekend to take on No. 18 North Central College in a battle of top-ranked squads.
