Khoury, Brock Sweep NWC Player of the Week Honors

SALEM, OR — Linebacker Medgy Khoury became the third straight Bearcat defender to win Northwest Conference Defensive Player of the Week honors, and running back Quentin Brock’s 146 yards rushing and three touchdowns earned him NWC Offensive Player of the Week honors, as the No. 21 ranked Bearcats prepare to face undefeated and No. 2 ranked Linfield College on Saturday.

Khoury (pictured left), a junior from Elko NV, had 11 tackles, a pair of sacks and forced a fumble in the Bearcats 28-17 win over Whitworth on Saturday. Khoury’s forced fumble led to the Bearcat’s winning touchdown.
That TD was scored by Brock, a junior running back from Fresno, CA. Brock scored three second half touchdowns and gained 146 yards on 24 carries as the Bearcats rolled up 557 yards in total offense to set up this week’s NWC championship showdown at Linfield.

In the two previous weeks, linebacker Logan Lord and defensive end Jeff Na earned Defensive Player of the Week honors. On Saturday, Willamette’s defense held Whitworth to 24 points below its scoring average.
