OhioCollegeFootball.com named the Quakers as their Team of the Week, while senior kicker Max Gabbard (Waynesville, OH/Waynesville) was the kicker on the d3football.com Team of the Week.

Gabbard was 2-for-2 on field goals, including a career-long 35-yarder for the game winner. He was also named Ohio Athletic Conference Special Teams Player of the Week and the WC Student-Athlete Advisory Committee Player of the Week.
