How former Mid-Penn players fared in college last week: Kuntz records 100-yard effort; Gustafson hauls in a pair of TDs and more

Five-star performance

Old Dominion dropped its fifth straight and fell to 1-6 thanks to a 43-20 loss to Western Kentucky, but Camp Hill product Zack Kuntz recorded his first 100-yard game in college.

The transfer from Penn State hauled in nine passes for 119 yards, both second on the Monarchs to Ali Jennings’ 13 for 172 on Saturday.

The production nearly doubled Kuntz’s previous high of 61 yards set in Week 2’s win. It also marked his new career high in receptions, breaking his mark of eight set two weeks ago.

In on the action

One week after his career performance of 20 tackles, Villanova product Forrest Rhyne added eight more tackles in Villanova’s 17-10 win at Albany.

Texas A&M’s Andre White (Harrisburg) followed up his eight-tackle week in the upset of No. 1 Alabama with three more takedowns as the Aggies thumped Missouri 35-14.

Another one-time Cougar, Donte Kent, also had five tackles in Central Michigan’s 26-23 overtime victory over Toledo.

Ronald Kent Jr. (Harrisburg) picked up a tackle as Western Carolina fell to 0-6 following a 34-24 loss to Mercer.

Cody Gustafson (Shippensburg High) hauled in two more touchdowns of 4 and 65 yards, giving him 10 on the year, to lead Grove City College (6-1) to a third straight win, 41-29 over Saint Vincent. Gustafson finished with eight grabs for 157 yards, his sixth 100-yard game and fourth in a row. He’s now 85 yards from 1,000 this season, which would be the third of his career.

PSAC performances

Shippensburg suffered its second loss in three weeks to a ranked opponent, this time falling 20-3 to No. 25 Kutztown. Bill Williams (Camp Hill) was smothered, held to 18 yards on 10 carries plus a 4-yard reception. Lower Dauphin grad Evan Morrill finished with four receptions and 33 yards. On defense, Shippensburg High’s Cameron Tinner had three tackles and a sack, his first of the season, for the Red Raiders, while Middletown alumnus Laron Woody had a tackle. 

Carlisle grad Gavyn Barnes had a 12-yard reception in IUP’s 48-21 win over Slippery Rock, while one of his former Mid-Penn Commonwealth opponents, Chambersburg’s Tyler Luther, added a pair of 24-yard field goals and six extra points for IUP.

Timmy Smith (Central Dauphin) led Millersville in a 38-13 loss to No. 15 Shepherd with four carries and 30 yards, while Cedar Cliff grad Jaheim Morris added 10 carries for 5 yards plus three receptions for 8 yards.
