Ripon, WI -- Julian Ross, a junior wide receiver for the Beloit College Football team from Oak Forest, Illinois, has been named the Midwest Conference Offensive Football Player of the Week for the week ending October 4.
The conference office announced the honor on Monday afternoon.
In Saturday's 29-22 win over Lake Forest College, Ross had ten catches for 187 yards and a 69-yard touchdown. The 187 yards was just two yards short of the all-time Beloit single-game record of 189 yards receiving set by All-American tight end Mike Meteyard against Carroll in 1994. Seven of Ross' receptions went for 12-yards plus and three of the ten were third down conversions.
