Bloomington, MN --- WPI senior Spencer Herrington (Clearfield, PA) has earned a spot on the D3football.com Team of the Week for his performance in Saturday's 13-6 triumph over previously unbeaten MIT. The kicker was recognized by the NEWMAC and Noontime Sports on Monday.
Herrington connected on two fourth-quarter field goals in adverse conditions one from 41 yards and one from 31 with less than six minutes left in the game. The senior outscored both teams as he drilled a PAT for a total of seven points on the day. He also boomed eight punts for 170 yards for an average of 21.3 with a long of 54 and two touchbacks, including one that narrowly missed going out at the 1 yard line. The 41-yard field goal ties his career best.
He joins Blaine Bursey (2016 - Week 2) as the only WPI kickers to have earned the national weekly award. The program's most recent selection was cornerback Brian Mahan (2017 – Week 6).
Football (5-3, 3-2) travels to Coast Guard (5-3, 3-2) Saturday for a noon NEWMAC kickoff.
