Canaan Gebele, Denison
GRANVILLE, Ohio -- Denison quarterback Canaan Gebele was named to the D3football.com Team of the Week for his performance in the Big Red's 66-18 victory over the College of Wooster on Saturday night.
Gebele was responsible for eight touchdowns against the Fighting Scots. He was 19-of-23 passing for 284 yards and four touchdowns. He also ran the ball 15 times for 120 yards and caught a 5-yard touchdown pass from wide receiver David Weimar in the second quarter. Gebele finished with 409 yards of total offense and needs only 221 yards of total offense this week to reach 10,000 yards for his career.
Gebele, a four-year starter, is putting a capstone on one of the most impressive careers in the 128-year history of Denison football. Already Denison's career-leader in passing yards (7,404), completions (615) and touchdown passes (63) he has also climbed the leaderboard with some of the best ball carriers at Denison. Gebele ranks 12th all-time in rushing yards with 2,366 and needs only 38 yards to move into ninth place on that list. He is also three rushing touchdowns shy of becoming the all-time leader in that category, as well.

Offensive Line, Wabash
CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. -- The Wabash starting offensive line of Kyle McAtee, Connor Phelps, Jake Slager, Russell Berning, and Dane Smith were named to the D3football.com Team of the Week presented by Scoutware for their performance in Saturday's 54-17 victory by the Little Giants over Allegheny.
Wabash rushed for 426 yards on 48 attempts and scored five touchdowns. The Little Giants also threw for three touchdowns and 164 yards to finish the game with 590 yards of total offense against a Gators team that came into the contest limiting the opposition to 111.4 rushing yards a game and had allowed only eight rushing TDs through the first eight games of the season. The line opened a hole for junior running back Isaac Avant to race 98 yards for one of the touchdowns, tying for the longest rush of the season and for the second-longest rush in Wabash history.
The Wabash front five also allowed only one sack in Saturday's win while facing an Allegheny defense that ranked eighth in the nation with an average of four sacks per game.
This marks the third time this season Wabash players have earned a place on the D3football Team of the Week. McAtee, Phelps, Slager, Berning, and Smith join Austin Hoover (Week 3) and Jake Page (Week 9) as Team of the Week selections.
