ALBION, MI – Albion College senior running back Colin Parks gashed Adrian College for 102 yards last Saturday, and he was rewarded by being named the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association’s Offensive Player of the Week.

It is the first time the senior from Southfield (who prepped at Lathrup High School) has ever gained the MIAA Player of the Week award.

Parks averaged nearly seven yards per carry against the league’s second-best team against the run. Parks scored on runs of 2 and 20 yards in the first half, giving him 11 rushing touchdowns on the season, a figure that ranks seventh in NCAA Division III.

“Anytime you rush for more than 100 yards against Adrian you are doing a good job,” Albion Head Coach Craig Rundle said. “He gets the tough yards and does a great job on pass protection.”

Parks has rushed for 715 yards through six games this season. His 7.2-yard average is 17th-best among Division III running backs.

Albion, 6-0 overall and 3-0 against MIAA rivals, is preparing for a home date against Trine University. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. Saturday on the Schmidt-Fraser Field inside Sprankle-Sprandel Stadium.
