WATERLOO, ON – The No. 4 Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks men’s football team have announced their players of the week following the team’s Week 2 victory over the No. 9 Queen’s Gaels on Sunday evening.

OFFENCE
Kurleigh Gittens Jr. – Receiver

Gittens Jr., a native of Ottawa, was at the forefront of Laurier’s offence against the Gaels as the fourth-year sociology major hauled in 12 catches for 178 yards, both the second-best single game performances of his career, along with a touchdown. The 12 receptions ties him with Stefan Ptaszek for fourth most in a single game in team history while his 178 yards are good for fifth most in a single game in Laurier history.

DEFENCE
Ron Kinga – Defensive Back

Kinga, a native of Guelph, Ont., was a presence in the secondary for the purple and gold as the fifth-year communications studies major played a key role in limiting Queen’s to 222 yards passing. Playing with great intensity, Kinga finished the game with one tackle, giving him 3.5 on the season so far.

SPECIAL TEAMS
Jon Timmons – Long Snapper

Timmons, a native of Mississauga, Ont., continued to show on Sunday why he has been such a key part of Laurier’s special teams over his five seasons. The fifth-year history major picked up the 19th special teams tackle of his career in the victory while delivering four perfect punt snaps and four perfect field goal snaps.
