PHILADELPHIA For the second week in a row, a Penn football player has earned Ivy League Player of the Week honors. This week, Penn’s quarterback Bryan Walker was tabbed Ivy League Offensive Player of the Week for his efforts in the Quakers’ 38-21 win against Yale on Oct. 22.
Walker completed 10-of-20 passes for 143 yards and threw two touchdown passes. Walker came in midway through the first quarter when Pat McDermott was injured. With the score tied, 0-0, Walker entered the game and led the Quakers' attack to 38 points by the end of the third quarter.
The Quakers improved to 5-1 overall and 3-0 in League play. Penn is the only unbeaten team in the Ancient Eight.
Senior Doug Middleton was named Ivy League Defensive Player of the week on Oct. 14 and Junior Kory Gedin earned the same distinction on Oct. 3.
The Quakers cracked the Sports Network Top 25 poll this week. Penn comes in at No. 25 this week.
No. 25 Penn travels to Providence, R.I. to take on Brown Saturday. Kickoff is 1 p.m.
