BLUFFTON, Ohio - Bluffton University running back Eric Fox (Brunswick) was voted as the HCAC Play of the Week for week 9. The junior earned the title after voting took place on the HCAC social media outlets of Facebook and Twitter. Fox leaped, twisted and landed on his feet, scoring from four yards out as the Beavers shut out Anderson 28-0 Saturday, securing this week's honor.
The final voting tally saw Fox garnering 69 percent of the vote (3,044 votes), beating out Franklin College's Jonny West who garnered 30 percent of the vote (1,337). It marked the second time this season that a Bluffton football player has been the top vote getter for Play of the Week. Senior Shawn Frost (Edison/Mt. Gilead) took home the honor in week three for his one-handed touchdown grab during Bluffton's 36-21 victory over Earlham in week 3.
The poll was distributed on the HCAC Twitter (@HCACDIII) and Facebook pages Monday, with voting ending at 10 AM Wednesday.
