The Advance of Bucks County - - SPORTS -

Harry S Tru­man grad­u­ate Drew Peter­son was the Mid­dle At­lantic Con­fer­ence De­fen­sive Player of the Week af­ter seven tack­les and a pair of in­ter­cep­tions for Al­bright in a re­cent win over Wilkes rniver­sity.

Peter­son, a ju­nior free saftey from Bris­tol, and team­mate Scott Pil­lar have been hon­ored by the MAC af­ter the Lions’ re­cent 27-13 road vic­tory over the Colonels. Pil­lar, a se­nior wide­out from Keans­burg, N.J., was named the Offensive Player of the Week.

Peter­son had a game-high seven solo tack­les (10 to­tal) as the Al­bright Col­lege de­fense shut out Wilkes for the first three quar­ters of a 27-13 win. He picked off two passes in the first half and added two tack­les for loss.

Pil­lar caught 14 balls for 156 yards and two touch­downs. He caught a 32- yard fake punt on Al­bright’s first scor­ing drive, and added touch­downs for 16 and 3 yards.

This is the sec­ond time that the pair has made the MAC Team of the Week si­mul­ta­ne­ously, af­ter achiev­ing the feat last year vs. King’s. It is the third time Pil­lar has made the MAC weekly honor list in his ca­reer, and Peter­son’s sec­ond ca­reer honor.
