BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – After helping lead the Baker University football team to a final regular season record of 8-2 and a spot in the NAIA FCS Playoffs, Dillon Baxter and Andre Jolly earned this week's Heart of America Athletic Conference Offensive and Defensive Player of the Week awards, the final awards of the 2012 season.

The Wildcats defeated Graceland, 40-7, last Saturday afternoon at home with the help of Baxter's season high 188 yards rushing and Andre Jolly's three sacks.

Baxter helped Baker wrap up the regular season with a fourth-straight victory and the junior from Chula Vista, Calif., ran the ball on 24 carries with two touchdowns, the second-straight week he posted a season-best rushing total.

For the third time this season, Jolly represented the Wildcats as the Defensive award winner after finishing the regular season off with that 33 point win over Graceland.

A sophomore from Gardner, Kan., he recorded seven tackles (five solo) including three sacks among his 4.5 tackles for loss to set a single-season school record with 16 sacks.

He is also the NAIA leader in sacks heading into the postseason. Baxter and Jolly will represent the conference in contention for the NAIA weekly awards, which will be announced on Monday afternoon.

The No. 11 ranked Wildcats will next take on No. 6 ranked University of St. Francis this Saturday, Nov. 17 at 12 p.m. in Fort Wayne, Ind., for the first round of the NAIA Football Championship Series.
