PHILADELPHIA - Sophomore running back Jake Klaus was named the Collegiate Sprint Football League (CSFL) Offensive Player of the Week after the University of Pennsylvania sprint football team clinched its first outright league championship since 2000 on Saturday, defeating Post 41-12. The honor is the first of Klaus' career.
Against the Eagles, Klaus carried the ball 27 times for the Quakers, gaining a career-high 248 yards. The yards gained for the sophomore were the most on the ground by any player in the CSFL this season, and the fourth-largest rushing performance in program history. Klaus scored two touchdowns in the win for the Red and Blue.
Penn (7-0) notched just the second undefeated season ever this fall. It was a whirlwind ride for the Quakers who defeated both service academies for the first time since 2000 and battled to overtime victories twice, both at historic Franklin Field.
