Quale Named Player of the Week


This is what a player of the week looks like

More congrats and celebration for Quale and the gigantic day he had on the ground this past Saturday at EMU. From the BSU release:

MUNCIE, Ind. – Senior H-Back MiQuale Lewis (Fort Wayne, Ind./Snider) was named Mid-American Conference Offensive Player of the Week for his performance at Eastern Michigan Saturday.

Lewis rushed for a career high 301 yards in Ball State’s 29-27 win at Eastern Michigan Saturday. Lewis’ 301 yards broke the previous school record of 260 by Earl Taylor vs. Eastern Michigan in 1976. He also tallied a career long 66-yard run at EMU while scoring his fourth rushing touchdown of the season.

Lewis along with teammate Cory Sykes (203 rushing yards) became the first duo in NCAA Football history to have one player rush for 300 yards in a game and a teammate rush for 200 yards in the same game. The duo gained an NCAA record 504 yards and became only the fourth tandem in NCAA history to gain at least 200 yards apiece in the same game.

This marks the second time in his career Lewis has received the weekly award from the MAC.

The Ball State football team returns home Saturday for Youth Day as they take on the Ohio Bobcats at Noon at Scheumann Stadium.

Kudos to Quale and kudos to the MAC for honoring him!
