Frederick, a sophomore from Angier, N.C., helped the Yellow Jackets post 51 points for the first time since 2011 with 223 all-purpose yards in Randolph-Macon's 51-0 triumph over Dickinson College. Frederick ran for a career-high 177 yards in his first outing as R-MC's lead running back. That effort included a 95-yard touchdown sprint to put the Yellow Jackets on top, 16-0, early in the second quarter. He finished his 19-carry day with a 9.3 per rush average. Frederick also returned a kickoff 46 yards to open the second half and lead to a touchdown. Frederick's 177 rushing yards led all ODAC backs in week one.

Defensive Player of the Week

 Davey Hardesty| Bridgewater| Sr.| Linebacker

Hardesty, a senior from Berryville, Va., helped Bridgewater to a 38-22 victory at Gettysburg College. The win featured a marked improvement by the Eagles' defense from its 49-10 loss in 2015 as BC held the Bullets scoreless until 7:28 of the fourth quarter. Hardesty backed up his defensive captaincy with six tackles that included a quarterback sack. His biggest play came early in the fourth frame when he intercepted a Gettsyburg passed and returned it 48 yards for a touchdown, giving Bridgewater a 31-0 lead with 14:30 to play. The interception was one of two turnovers forced by the Eagles' defense on the day.
