Three Wolverines capture NJAC weekly honors

PITMAN, N.J. – Three Wesley College football players were named New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) Players of the Week for their performance in Wesley's 45-27 win over RPI in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Junior wide receiver Alex Kemp earns the final NJAC Offensive Player of the Week selection after finishing the game with 239 yards of total offense, including 11 receptions for 149 yards and a touchdown. He also was a factor in the run game, carrying three times for 90 yards a touchdown. A first-team all-conference selection, Kemp is the fourth different Wolverine to earn NJAC Offensive Player of the Week honors this season. He currently ranks third in the NJAC in receiving yards (76.4 per game).

Senior linebacker Samer Manna collects the final NJAC Defensive Player of the Week selection of the season, his second consecutive honor. He secured a team-high 13 tackles in the win, including five solo stops and 1.0 tackle for a loss. With Wesley trailing at the half, he keyed a defensive performance which saw the Wolverines hold RPI to just seven second half points. A first-team all-conference selection, Manna currently ranks third in the NJAC in tackles (9.4 per game).

Freshman defensive end Kimane Jones picks up the final NJAC Defensive Rookie of the Week honor of 2017. In the first postseason game of his collegiate career, he secured three tackles, including a career-high 2.5 tackles for a loss. He also notched a pair of sacks in a contest in which the Wesley defense sacked RPI quarterback George Marinopoulos five times. Jones currently ranks 19th in the NJAC in sacks (3.5).
