Chapman Named to National Team of the Week

October 4, 2011

Billy Chapman has been selected as the tight end on this week’s D3football.com Team of the Week. Chapman set personal game-highs with 10 catches and 139 yards, while hauling in a touchdown in a 41-15 win against Colby.

On Middlebury’s first offensive play, he nabbed a short pass and scampered 22 yards, leading to Middlebury’s first touchdown. Chapman made big catches all game, getting first down yardage in six of seven scoring drives for Middlebury. His longest reception of 37 yards set up a Middlebury touchdown late in the second quarter, while his last catch was for a touchdown in the fourth quarter, capping the Panthers’ scoring. On the day, eight of Chapman’s team-high 10 catches went for first downs.
