BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – The No. 9 ranked Baker University Football team has earned two more Heart of America Athletic Conference weekly football awards, as senior quarterback Sam Vossen and junior punter Bryan Williams earned HAAC Offensive and Special Teams Player of the Week honors.

Vossen made his second career start for the Wildcats and led his team to a third-straight victory, a 48-17 triumph over Evangel in the home opener for Baker.

The senior from Tecumseh, Kan., completed 18-of-27 passes for 241 yards and three touchdowns while also rushing once for four yards.

The Wildcats are 3-0 for the first time since 2000 and have won seven-straight games dating back to last season.

The special teams of the Wildcats got a solid performance from Williams, who was a steady presence handling the punting duties. A junior from Pinetop, Ariz., Williams fired four punts for an average of 43.0 yards per kick with a long of 54 yards.

This is the third straight week a Wildcat has earned one of the three weekly football awards for the HAAC. The Wildcats will look to go 4-0 this week as they travel to Fayette, Mo., to take on Central Methodist at 6 p.m.
