Brown, Dreiling Earn MIAA Player of the Week Honors

Updated:

KANSAS CITY, MO — Pittsburg State University senior wide receiver John Brown was named the MIAA Offensive Player of the Week Monday (Oct. 14), while senior linebacker Nate Dreiling earned MIAA Defensive Player of the Week honors.

The Homestead, Fla., native posted a game-high 12 catches for 199 yards and two touchdowns to help propel No. 10 Pitt State to a 31-21 road win over Central MissouriSaturday (Oct. 12).

Brown (5-11, 170) hauled in a five-yard scoring catch from quarterback Tony Abenoja with 1:00 remaining in the second quarter to help the Gorillas draw even at 14-14. He then had a key 38-yard catch 40 seconds later that set up PSU's go-ahead score with six ticks remaining in the first half.

Brown added a 30-yard scoring catch to open the second half as the Gorillas built a 28-14 cushion, and his eight-yard grab in the games final minute allowed Pitt State run out the clock and claim a hard-fought win.

Dreiling made a team-leading eight tackles and secured an interception that led to a score to fuel the Pitt State defense against the Mules. His interception on the game's first offensive play allowed the Gorillas to capitalize on a short field and grab an early 7-0 lead.

The Hutchinson/Victoria, Kan., native made eight tackles with two stops behind the line of scrimmage as Pitt State limited UCM to 57 net rushing yards in the contest. Dreiling currently sits in ninth place on the MIAA all-time tackle chart with 437 career stops.
