FREELAND, Mich.--Adrian College senior wide receiver Jerron McGaw (Indianapolis, Ind. / Thomas Carr Howe High School) has been named the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Offensive Player of the Week, the conference announced on Monday. This marks the third such citation for McGaw who also was twice honored in 2017 (Nov. 6, Sep. 5).

McGaw had a significant impact in Adrian's 56-27 home-opening victory against Buffalo State, torching the Bengals' secondary for game- and personal highs of 13 receptions and 256 yards to go along with a school-record five touchdown catches. The 256 yards are the most in NCAA Division III so far and second in all Divisions behind Bryce Nunnelly of FCS Chattanooga who had 268 in a contest. McGaw tied Nathan Hartline's school record of five TD receptions, set on Sep. 6, 2014 at Defiance College.

For the season, McGaw is among national leaders in receiving TDs (T-1st, 5), receiving yards (5th, 354) and receptions per game (25th, 8.5).

Adrian will play at Aurora University in Illinois in Saturday (2 p.m. Eastern) for the MIAA-Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Challenge.
