BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – Baker University senior Dillon Baxter and junior Andre Jolly earned this week's Heart of America Athletic Conference Offense and Defense Player of the Week awards respectively after leading No. 15 Baker over No. 18 Ottawa in the County Line Clash on Saturday.

Baker kicked off its season with a thrilling 25-24 win over Ottawa with Baxter providing the late-game heroics.

A senior RB from San Diego, Calif., Baxter did most of the work to convert a 15-yard
reception for a touchdown with 48 seconds to play that proved to be the game winner. He finished the game with 16 carries for 119 yards while also tallying a pair of receptions.

Jolly picked up where he left off last season with a pair of sacks to run his school-record total to 24.5 for his career.

A junior DE from Gardner, Kan., he tallied seven tackles, including four for loss, as the Wildcats won the County Line Clash for the third-straight season.

The NAIA weekly awards will be handed out each Monday through the end of the regular season with each winner on the conference level representing the conference for those honors.

Baker will next take on the University of St. Mary this Saturday, Sept. 14 at 1:30 p.m. in Leavenworth, Kan.
