WASHINGTON - Senior cornerback Jeremy Moore (New Haven, Conn./James Hillhouse) has been named Patriot League Defensive Player of the Week and the College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) National Defensive Back of the Week after intercepting a career-high three passes, returning one 80 yards for a touchdown and recovering a fumble in the Hoyas 17-14 loss to No. 10 Lehigh on Saturday.

Moore, who earned his second Patriot League Defensive Player of the Week and CFPA National Defensive Back of the Week honor this season, shattered the career interception return yardage record at both Georgetown and in the Patriot League on Saturday. In the second quarter, Moore returned an interception 80 yards for a touchdown, his second interception return for a touchdown this season. His 318 career interception yards passed Jim Bolger (1989-92) on the Hoyas all-time list, while breaking the previous PL record of 309 yards. Moore's two interception touchdown returns puts him into a first place tie with Nick Parrish and Adam Banks for the program's single-season interceptions for touchdowns record.

"Jeremy is a big play guy, that's why he's a preseason All-America candidate," Head Coach Kevin Kelly said. "He's a guy that we count on to make big plays and he does it almost every week."

On the season, Moore leads the Patriot League and the nation with five interceptions and 133 interception return yards. He is also tied for second in the nation and leads the PL with three fumble recoveries in 2012. He was previously honored this season following the Hoyas game against Yale, when he intercepted two passes and returned one 41-yards for a touchdown.

The Hoyas return to action on Saturday, October 20 when they travel to Hamilton, N.Y. to take on the Colgate Raiders (3-3, 1-0) with kick-off slated for 1:06 p.m.
