WASHINGTON - Junior cornerback Jayah Kaisamba (Fort Worth, Texas/LD Bell) and freshman punter Matt MacZura (Cranberry Township, Pa./Central Catholic) each earned Weekly Performer of the Week Honorable Mention distinctions from CollegeFootballPerformance.com when honors were announced on the web site on Monday evening.
Kaisamba intercepted two passes against Wagner on Saturday in the Hoyas 22-16 double overtime loss. He also had seven tackles and half a tackle for loss, helping him earn Defensive Back Performer of the Week Honorable Mention. Kaisamba currently leads the Patriot League with four interceptions and is tied for 11th in Division I FCS, averaging 0.67 interceptions per game.
MacZura, who earned Patriot League Rookie of the Week on Sept. 20, was rewarded as Punter Performer of the Week after punting six times for 283 yards with a long of 70. Three times MacZura pinned the Seahawks inside their own 20 yard line on Saturday, helping the Hoyas in the battle for field position.
