Tidwell and Hoffman Named Conference Players of the Week

Brooklyn, NY----Sophomore running back, Deion Tidwell and freshman kicker, Ross Hoffman have been named the Offensive and Special Teams Northeast Football Conference Players of the Week respectively for their efforts at Dean College on Saturday.  

Tidwell earns the honor for the third time so far this season.  The tail back produced his third game of more than 200 yards on the ground with 227 on 47 total carries.  He scored all three of ASA's touchdowns including a 64-yard touchdown run.  With five games left to play, the Arkansas native has already surpassed 1,000 yards on the season.  

Hoffman earns the honor for the second time this season.  The freshman kicker/punter connected from 29 yards out for the Avengers' only other score of the game.  He would also average over 30 yards on five punts with one dropping inside the Dean 20-yard line.  

The Avengers will be back on the gridiron on Saturday, October 10th.  They host conference foe, Lackawanna, at MCU Park in their only home game this season.  Kickoff is scheduled for NOON.
