deluca named player of the week
DeLuca rushed for a career-high 242 yards and three touchdowns in the Mules’ 49-6 win at McDaniel. All three of his scores came in the third quarter, including a career-long 72-yarder. DeLuca also returned two kickoffs for 63 yards, giving him 305 all-purpose yards on the afternoon.
It was the 14th 200-yard effort in Muhlenberg history, and the first since 2003. DeLuca, who has 16 career 100-yard games, leads the CC in rushing (156.0 yards per game) and all-purpose running (188.3 yards per game) and is second in scoring (9.0 points per game).
The win at McDaniel, combined with Franklin & Marshall’s 23-20 loss at Moravian, gave the Mules (6-0, 4-0) a two-game lead in the CC with four games to play. Five teams (Johns Hopkins, Moravian, Gettysburg, Dickinson and F&M) have two losses apiece.
Muhlenberg remains at No. 5 in the D3Football.com poll.
