DOVER, Del. - After the Wesley College Football team earned a 41-0 shutout of New Jersey Athletic Conference opponent TCNJ on Saturday afternoon, defensive end Isaiah Ingram and running back E.J. Lee were honored with NJAC weekly awards. Ingram was named NJAC Defensive Player of the Week while Lee earned NJAC Offensive Rookie of the Week for the second straight period.
Ingram becomes the second different Wolverine to earn NJAC Defensive Player of the Week honors after helping Wesley move into a tie for first place in the conference with a 41-0 NJAC win over TCNJ. In a contest in which the Wesley defense held TCNJ's offense to just 177 total yards, he tallied nine tackles, including 1.5 tackles for a loss. He also registered 1.5 sacks to help secure the Wolverine's first shutout since the 2015 regular season finale. Ingram currently ranks tied for seventh in the NJAC in total sacks (3.0).
Lee earns NJAC Offensive Rookie of the Week honors for the second consecutive week after helping Wesley secure a 41-0 NJAC victory over TCNJ. In just his third game played at Scott Miller Stadium, he averaged 10.5 yards per carry, finishing the contest with 15 rushes for 157 yards and three touchdowns. His performance marked the most single-game rushing yards by a Wesley freshman since the 2013 season. Lee currently ranks sixth in the NJAC in rushing (67.0 yards per game).
Wesley will look to keep their momentum going when they travel to Kean on October 15 to take on their NJAC rival.
