DOVER, Del. - Wesley College football senior Joe Callahan was named to the D3football.com Team of the Week after an outstanding performance on Saturday in a 50-49 win over No. 22 North Central College.
Callahan passed for 414 yards and three touchdowns and ran for 111 yards and three more scores. His most impressive accomplishment in No. 5 Wesley's 50-49 win over No. 22 North Central was the comeback he orchestrated. The Wolverines trailed by 21 in the second half, and came back to take the lead with 28 consecutive points. After North Central responded with 14 straight of their own, Callahan led the Wesley offense on a 94-yard two-minute drill that found the end zone with seven seconds left. He then completed a two-point conversion to give the fifth-ranked Wolverines a 50-49 win.
Wesley is now 3-0 on the season and will return to New Jersey Athletic Conference play when they take on Southern Virginia University on October 3 at home.
