Dunlop named special teams player of the week

Hanover College placekicker Dylan Dunlop (Miami, Fla.) has been named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference’s football special teams player of the week.

Dunlop, a junior, converted a season-high 7-of-7 point-after-touchdown attempts to help Hanover post a 55-10 victory against Earlham College in the Panthers’ Homecoming game last weekend.

Dunlop is fifth on the Panthers in scoring with 24 points this season. He has made 21-of-27 point-after attempts and also nailed a 20-yard field goal against the College of Mount St. Joseph (Ohio), Sept. 15.

In his career, Dunlop has hit 85-of-103 point-after attempts and 15-of-20 field goals, including a career-long 42-yarder against Anderson University during the 2011 campaign.

Hanover, riding a six-game winning streak, is 6-2 overall and 6-0 in the Heartland Conference. The Panthers face Manchester University in a league clash, Saturday, Nov. 3, in North Manchester, Ind.
