WASHINGTON -- Senior quarterback Kyle Nolan (Branford, Conn./Branford[Choate Rosemary Hall]) was named the Corvias Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week for the second time this season, while junior defensive end Phil Novacki (Great Falls, Va./Langley) was selected to the weekly honor roll when the league announced award winners on Monday afternoon.
Nolan turned in one of the best performances of his career, tossing a career-high five touchdown passes, while completing 28-of-36 pass attempts for 311 yards. Nolan also carried the ball five times for 48 yards, as the Georgetown University football team (3-3, 1-0 Patriot League) defeated Lafayette College, 38-7, its largest margin of victory over a Patriot League opponent since joining the league in 2001.
Early in the second quarter Nolan became GU's career leader in passing attempts (830) and completions (457), while moving into second in career passing yards (4,607).
Novacki earned his first PL weekly honor after tallying five tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss for 11 yards, 1.5 sacks and one quarterback hurry. The GU defense held Lafayette to just nine rushing yards.
The Hoyas host the Colgate Raiders (2-4, 1-0 Patriot League) on Saturday, October 17 at Cooper Field. The opening kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m.
