Dunlop named HCAC player of the week

Senior placekicker Dylan Dunlop (Miami, Fla.) has been named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference’s special teams player of the week for his production in Hanover College’s 24-21 win against Manchester University, Nov. 9.

Dunlop kicked a 21-yard field goal and nailed three extra points in the Panthers’ come-from-behind victory, and in the process, set Hanover’s career kick-scoring record. The six points raised his career total to 167, surpassing the 166 points tallied by former standout Dan Farrington from 1991-94

Hanover, riding a five-game winning streak, is 5-4 overall and 5-2 in the Heartland Conference. The Panthers close the 2013 season Saturday, Nov. 16, with the annual battle for the Victory Bell against Franklin College. The game will start at 1:30 p.m. at L.S. Ayres Field.
