Baynard Named NJAC Offensive Player of the Week

PITMAN, N.J. - After the Wesley College Football team dismantled Stevenson University with their running game on their way to an NCAA Tournament First Round victory, Jamar Baynard earned New Jersey Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Week honors.

Baynard earns the final NJAC Offensive Player of the Week selection, his second of the season, after helping lead the Wolverines to a 38-17 NCAA Tournament first round victory over No. 20 Stevenson. He averaged 7.4 yards per carry on the day, finishing with 265 rushing yards on 36 attempts and three rushing touchdowns. His 265-yard performance marked the most rushing yards by an NJAC player in a game this season, and the second most single-game rushing yards in Wesley program history. A first team all-conference selection, Baynard currently ranks second in the NJAC in rushing (108.1 yards per game).

The Wolverines will continue their postseason quest for the Stagg Bowl when they face John Carroll University on Saturday, November 26 in Ohio.
