Chapman Makes National Team of the Week Again

October 25, 2011

Billy Chapman has been tabbed as the tight end on this week’s D3football.com Team of the Week. This is the second time this season he earned a spot on the team. Chapman set a career-high with 11 catches in a 49-43 victory over Bates on Saturday. He ended  the day with 122 yards receiving, a touchdown and a key two-point conversion that tied the game early in the fourth quarter.

Chapman, who made the team after a 11-catch 139 yard day against Colby earlier this month, currently ranks fifth in the nation for receptions per game, averaging nine per contest. The junior leads all tight ends nationally in receptions (45) and receptions per game.
