Sept. 12, 2016

WASHINGTON - Georgetown University football senior defensive lineman Hunter Kiselick (Nutley, N.J./Bergen Catholic) was named the Corvias Patriot League Special Teams Player of the Week on Monday, recognizing his efforts in GU’s 20-17 road victory at Marist on Saturday. Additionally, senior defensive end Phil Novacki (Great Falls, Va./Langley) and junior wide receiver Justin Harrell (New Orleans/Newman) both earned honorable mention selections.

Kiselick blocked a pair of Marist field goal attempts as the Hoyas preserved a three-point victory on the road. Trailing 10-3 in the second quarter, Kiselick blocked a 37-yard attempt to give GU some momentum. In the fourth quarter, he blocked a 48-yard attempt to help maintain the three-point lead. He also finished with six tackles, 0.5 sacks and one pass breakup.

Novacki helped lead the Hoya defense that held Marist to 0-of-13 on third down conversions and under 100 yards rushing. He finished with five total tackles, including three solo tackles, and also had 1.5 sacks and 2.5 tackles for a loss. Novacki recorded a six-yard sack that stalled Marist’s final drive in the fourth quarter.

Harrell led Georgetown’s receiving corps with eight receptions for 84 yards and a touchdown. He also added two rushes for nine yards. With the Hoyas trailing, 17-13 early in the fourth quarter, Harrell caught a 19-yard pass on third-and-eight to give GU first-and-goal from the 5-yard line. Four plays later, on fourth-and-goal from the three, Harrell scored the game-winning touchdown on a three-yard catch, putting the Hoyas up, 20-17.

Georgetown improved to 2-0 with Saturday’s win, the first time the Blue & Gray has won its first two games since 2012. The Hoyas will have a bye week before returning home to take on Ivy League foe Columbia in a homecoming matchup for the Lou Little Trophy on Saturday, September 24. Kickoff at Cooper Field is set for 2 p.m. Last season, GU defeated the Lions, 24-16, in New York.
