NJAC honors pair of Wolverines: Wesley College defensive end Shymere Vessels (Woodbridge) and kicker Nick Bruhn both earned New Jersey Athletic Conference weekly football awards on Sunday.

Vessels becomes the second different Wolverine to earn NJAC Defensive Player of the Week honors after helping Wesley remain unbeaten with a 20-17 come-from-behind road win at Endicott. He finished with a team-high 12 tackles, including seven solo stops.

He also registered 4.0 tackles for a loss in a defensive effort which saw Endicott held to just 68 yards of offense in the second half.

Bruhn earned NJAC Special Teams Player of the Week honors. He connected on a 23-yard field goal with just 4:20 remaining in the fourth quarter to tie the game at 17-17 before booting the game-winning 27-yard field goal with just two seconds remaining in
regulation.

Wesley, which has an open date this weekend, moved up one spot to No. 14 in Sunday’s D3football.com poll.
