Another week of college football is in the books, and while we prepare for another busy weekend of action across the country it is time to look back at the top performers from a week ago. On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Maxwell Football Club did just that by handing out its Players of the Week awards for the Maxwell Award and Chuck Bednarik Award.
The Maxwell Award Player of the Week will be recognized for overall performance on offense, defense or special teams, and the Chuck Bednarik Award Player of the Week will be honored for outstanding defensive play.
Every weekly winner will be added to the season watch lists for the awards.
The winners for Week 2 can be seen from the official press release below.
Maxwell Football Club Players of the Week — Week 2
Maxwell Award Player of the Week: Steven Montez, Colorado
QB Steven Montez was unstoppable leading Colorado to a road victory over Nebraska Saturday. This was the former Big 12 rivals’ first meeting since 2010. Montez completed 33 of his 50 pass attempts for 351 yards and three touchdowns. The Buffs return home this Saturday for a game against New Hampshire.
Chuck Bednarik Player of the Week: Chase Hansen, Utah
LB Chase Hansen dominated this weekend as Utah defeated Northern Illinois, 17-6. Hansen had an impressive 12 tackles, 2 sacks, 1 fumble recovery, and a late pick-6 to secure the road win. The Utes look to carry the momentum as they host No. 10 Washington this Saturday night.
