BLOOMINGTON, Minn. - Wesley College's Chris Mayes (Waldorf, Md./Westlake) added yet another accolade after his stellar performance in a 17-14 win for the third ranked Wolverines in the Route 13 Rivalry at Salisbury.

After already earning both Atlantic Central Football Conference and ECAC South Defensive Player of the Week honors, Mayes was chosen to the D3football.com Team of the Week.

Mayes had seven tackles, five solo, with four tackles for a loss, a sack, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery in the Route 13 Rivalry win against Salisbury. He helped spearhead a defense that held the second rated rushing attack in NCAA Division III to 164 yards (279 less than its average) and two top 12 ranked runners were held to 17 yards combined on 35 carries.

The junior captain and his teammates are idle this weekend before hosting Kean at Scott D. Miller Stadium on November 13.
