FREELAND, Mich.-- For the second time in three weeks, Adrian College sophomore quarterback Jack Wurzer (Pinckney Community High School) has been named the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association offensive player of the week in football, it was announced by the league office on Monday. He also was honored for this same award by the MIAA on Oct. 21.

Wurzer made the most of his playing time of one-and-a-half quarters in Adrian's 48-24 blowout win at MIAA foe Finlandia played under less than ideal conditions that included snow on the field, wind and temperatures in the 30s. He was a tidy 10-for-13 passing with 220 yards and a pair of touchdowns while finishing with a 269.8 efficiency rating. He engineered scoring drives on five of the Bulldogs first six possessions before exiting the contest in the second quarter to give reserve signal-callers valuable experience.

On the season, the architecture major leads the MIAA with a 252.5 passing yards average--82.1 better than the next closet student-athlete. He also is first in completions (146) and attempts (240) for 60.8 percent (4th) with 12 touchdowns (3rd).

Nationally, Wurzer is ranked 35th in NCAA Division III passing yards with 2020, which is a career high and the fifth-best total in school single-season history.
