Mission Players of the Week

Saddleback College running back PT Gates, El Camino College corner back Lamar Chapman, and Palomar College punter Jake Harry (PHOTO) have been named Week 9 Mission Football Conference Players of the Week for their performances on the field.

Gates (RB, 5-11, 195, So., San Diego, CA/Marian Catholic HS) had 16 carries for 125 yards and two touchdowns (30, 11-yards) in Saddleback's 24-12 win at Santa Ana. Gates also caught 4 passes for 45 yards and had one kickoff return for 21 yards to account for 191 total yards on his way to offensive player of the week honors.

Chapman (CB, 5-8, 160, Fr., Compton, CA/Compton HS) had the biggest defensive play of the weekend, returning a blocked field goal 90 yards for a touchdown in El Camino's 31-0 shutout over Golden West. Chapman also intercepted a pass, broke up another, and posted 3 tackles to be named defensive player of the week.

Harry (P/K, 6-1, 195, So., San Diego, CA/Torrey Pines HS/Oregon State) nailed four punts inside the Mt. SAC 20-yard line (to 19, 16, 5 and 10-yard line) to earn special teams player of the week honors. His punts and kickoffs effectively kept ball out of Travis Lee's hands in Palomar's 42-7 upset of the Mounties.
