Freshman Jared Nelson was named Conference Carolinas Player of the Week as announced by the league this afternoon. Nelson had a performance for the ages in Pfeiffer's 20-7 thrashing of Emmanuel on Saturday.
The Vestal, NY native tied a record that has stood since 1997 as he handed out nine assists against the Lions, tying Kevin Iwanusa's 20-year old mark. Nelson added two goals, three ground balls and three caused turnovers and scored his two goals on just three shots.
Nelson and the Falcons return to action on Tuesday night as they host Methodist in their final home game of the regular season.
