Gamebreakers Men DII College Oct 19-20

Austin Cochrance for Grand Valley State.

We’re coming down to the time for conference playoffs and clinching divisional titles, and the stakes are getting higher.

That makes the performances each week that much more important. Here’s a look at the Men’s DII College Gamebreakers for October 19-20.

Enzo Santos, Colorado Mesa

The Mavericks No. 8 scored two tries to spark his side to a 52-41 win over Montana State.

Dillon Shotwell, Sam Houston State

SHSU beat Angelo State in a clash of undefeated teams to grab 1st place in the Lonestar Conference. Shotwell was in the middle of this as the hooker led the effort up front and crossed the tryline twice.

Mats Najberg, Boston University

The Terriers fullback logged 36 points against Southern Connecticut State with two penalty goals, two tries, and ten conversions.

Dan Collier, Troy Walter, and Chris Armbrust, Shippensburg

In winning three straight after an early loss, Shippensburg is into the MARC playoffs, and the Ship back row has been superb, leading the team in terms of work rate and securing possession.

Jackson King, Furman

The sophomore flanker led the team with 12 tackles and added two tries as the Paladins beat Citadel 53-5.

Austin Cochrane, Grand Valley State (pictured above)

Cochrane plays all through the backline and seems to do just fine wherever he plays. He was very effective in finding space, sometimes beating Saginaw Valley State out wide and also able to cut through the middle.

Jack Doordan, York

In a close win over Scranton, Doordan was very strong in the tackle, and playing hooker he was responsible for stealing several Scranton scrums.

Brendan Urbanski and AJ Maiorana, Central Michigan

The CMU midfield pairing was hugely effective in blasting through the Oakland University line as CMU won 58-10.

John Schneider, Marist

The team's leading try-scorer scored two again this week as the prop led Marist to a 29-24 win over Monroe.

Noah Cook, Norwich

A convert from soccer, Cook has embraced life as a rugby player at inside center for the Cadets. He does a lot of the unsung stuff, making tackles, working to get into position, and working the rucks. His work rate helped spark Norwich to a win over UMass-Lowell.
