Robertson's reign ends, Hamilton honored

Jeremy Wang

Villanova quarterback John Robertson's three-week streak of winning CAA rookie honors ended, but punter Mark Hamilton was recognized for a tremendous game against Maine.

John Robertson's run as CAA Rookie of the Week ended at three consecutive weeks, but a Villanova Wildcat was included on the conference honor roll for the fourth-consecutive week as punter Mark Hamilton was given the Special Teams' honors for the first time this season. He boomed a number of long punts against Maine to help keep the Black Bears pinned on their own side of the field, including three punts that were over 50 yards.

Hamilton's punting has helped the Wildcats win the field-position battle in the last four games, and has been a factor in the defense's success.

The full list of CAA honors is reproduced below:

Offensive Player of the Week: Andy Vailas, QB, New Hampshire

Following a scoreless Wildcat first half, Vailas broke it open after intermission to tally three touchdowns during a 34-0 second-half run that led to No. 20 New Hampshire's 34-14 victory over No. 8 Delaware and the snapping of the Blue Hens' seven-game win streak. The sophomore equaled a career high with 23 completions on 36 attempts for 315 passing yards and two scores in the air, while also tacking on a 1-yard touchdown run in the third-quarter as part of his 14-carry, 36- yard rushing effort.

Defensive Player of the Week: Dontra Peters, CB, New Hampshire
Peters picks up his third career league weekly award on the heels of his two interceptions in the Wildcats' win over the top-10 Hens on Saturday. The senior captain and converted running back came away with the two picks during a decisive 34-0 run that turned a 7-0 deficit into a 34-7 lead. Peters' three-tackle tally also included his first career half-sack, which led to a loss of four yards.

Special Teams Player of the Week: Mark Hamilton, PK/P, Villanova
Hamilton had in an all-around stellar showing in Villanova's 35-14 victory on the road at Maine. In addition to converting all five of his PATs, the junior finished the afternoon with seven punts that included two inside the 20-yard line, a long of 63 yards and another pair that surpassed the 50-yard mark. Hamilton's 59-yarder came when the Wildcats were forced to punt from their own end zone, with the punt ultimately forcing the Black Bears to take over at their own 25-yard line.

Rookie of the Week: Luke Rhodes, LB, William and Mary
Rhodes tied for a team-high eight tackles, including five solo stops, in the Tribe's 35-3 triumph over Georgia State on Saturday. The rookie also recorded a pass breakup to help a dominant William and Mary defense hold the Panthers to just three points and 249 total yards.
