Jacob McCombie earns MIAA POTW honors

Alma College freshman punter Jacob McCombie has earned MIAA Special Teams Player of the Week honors. McCombie punted five times for a 40.6-yard average, including a long punt of 47 yards, in Alma’s 24-21 loss to Aurora. He is being honored as Player of the Week for the first time in his career and placed two of his kicks inside the Spartans’ 20-yard-line.

Football week 3

I spoke with Coach Pscodna this morning and he believes his team matches up well with this week's opponent Aurora University. Both teams dropped games at Illinois Wesleyan with Aurora falling 49-13. Saturday's game is part of the MIAA/NAC Challenge Series as teams from the MIAA will travel to NAC schools. This season marks the start of the series with both conferences signing a four-year agreement. Home sites will alternate each season. I'll have a full game preview online Friday and in print on Saturday.
