The votes have been tallied, and it is now time to announce True To The Cru’s Players of the Week presented by Montgomery Chiropractic.

Montgomery Chiropractic has been a fixture in the community since 1981, when Dr. Larry Montgomery opened the practice. While he has since retired, his son Dr. Micah Montgomery (who played football at UMHB in 2004) continues to carry on the tradition of providing great chiropractic care. Located at 401 E 6th Ave in Belton.

Offensive Player of the Week: Kyle King

UMHB’s quarterback was stellar on senior day, completing 17-of-23 passes for his second-highest completion percentage in a single game this season. He threw for 212 yards and two touchdowns, while rushing for his first touchdown of the season. King finished the regular season with exactly 2,500 passing yards. 

Defensive Player of the Week: Sante Parker Jr. 

The senior defensive end turned in an exceptional performance, tallying four tackles, two of which were solo, and 2.5 for loss. He added 1.0 sack, and is now tied for the team lead in tackles for loss, with 15.5, and has 8.5 sacks, a team-best. 

Special Teams Player of the Week: Anthony Avila

Avila once again earns this weekly honor, as his kicking was spot-on in the 62-3 win. He converted on both of his field goals, with his longest going for 42 yards. The senior also averaged 60 yards per kickoff on nine kickoffs, and was a perfect 6-of-6 on extra-point attempts. He is now 3-of-3 on field goal attempts between 40-49 yards, and has scored 85 points this season. 

Women’s Soccer Player of the Week: Ashley Vensel

Vensel tallied UMHB’s lone goal in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, scoring on an excellent play as she sent it into the back of the net past the diving PLU goalkeeper late in the second half. The junior midfielder played 34 minutes, and had four shots. 

Men’s Soccer Player of the Week: Jack Bryan

Bryan was huge in UMHB’s offensive attack in the first round NCAA Tournament match in Belton against Pacific Lutheran, scoring both of the Cru’s goals, and accounting for three of UMHB’s eight shots on goal. The freshman forward came off the bench to play 47 minutes and tallied two goals in a match for the second time in his collegiate career.
