A physical education major with a 3.43 grade-point average, Doug Kress made a team-high 11 tackles in CMU's 18-7 win over Ball State last Saturday. He led a defense that limited Ball State, the top scoring and passing offense in the MAC, to season lows of seven points and 160 passing yards.
The win was CMU's fourth in five games and kept them alone in first place in the MAC West Division.
The MAC Scholar Athlete of the Week honor is presented to a MAC male and female student-athlete who has a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better and performs well during that week's competition. The winners are selected by a group of the conference's faculty athletic representatives.
