Maione, Hammond Named PFL Players of the Week
DAVIDSON, N.C. – Following Davidson’s rout of St. Andrews on Saturday, sophomore Aaron Maione and junior Jonathan Hammond have been named the PFL Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week.
Maione scored three touchdowns and became the second PFL player to score three touchdowns in a game this season, catching two touchdown passes and running for another. He had a touchdown catch and run to account for both the Wildcats’ scores in the second quarter. Maione needed just three receptions for 29 yards and three carries for 60 yards to score his three TDs. He added another 43 yards on punt returns to lead the Wildcats all-purpose runners with 141 yards.
Hammond’s pick-six was Davidson’s second touchdown of the day just 12 seconds after Davidson scored its first touchdown. Hammond broke in front of a pass at the St. Andrews nine-yard line and returned the interception to the end zone. He also had three tackles, a pass breakup, and a quarterback hurry on the day.
The Wildcats open the eight-game Pioneer Football League schedule next week at Presbyterian.
