Dexter Russell, a senior wide receiver from Morrisville, NC was named to the D3football.com national team of the week on Tuesday morning.
Dexter had an outstanding game in the 51-50 loss to Methodist University last Saturday. Russell caught 23 passes for 309 yards and three touchdowns. That total does not include the two point conversion that he caught with just under seven minutes remaining in the game.
With his totals, Dexter was just two receptions short of tying the NCAA DIII mark for receptions in a game. However, Russell set the Greensboro College school record for most passes caught in a game, while tying the school record for most touchdowns caught in a game at three. Dexter also set a USA South Conference record for most receptions in a single game.
