BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – The honors keep rolling in for Eureka College junior running back LeAnthony Reasnover (Momence, Ill./Momence H.S.), who was named to the D3football.com Team of the Week for the second consecutive week after a 355-yard, 5-touchdown performance in the Red Devils' 40-34 victory over St. Scholastica last Saturday at McKinzie Field.

The D3football.com Team of the Week, presented by Scoutware, recognizes the nation's top player at each position from the previous week. Reasnover is the first Red Devil to earn the honor multiple times.

Reasnover, who also earned his second straight UMAC Offensive Player of the Week selection on Monday, carried 53 times for 355 yards in the victory over the Saints. The effort broke Eureka's previous single-game rushing record of 292 set by Justin Dempsey at MacMurray on Nov. 3, 2007.  Reasnover closed the afternoon with 3,556 career yards to break the previous school mark of 3,304 held by Derrick Harris (1991-93) and also increased his 2017 rushing total to 1,582 to replace Harris' single-season mark of 1,485 set in 1992. 

The performance helped give Eureka its first victory over CSS since 2009, vaulted the Red Devils into a first-place tie in the UMAC standings and moved EC within one victory of its first national playoffs appearance since 1994.

Reasnover and the Red Devils will try to lock up the league title this Saturday in a noon UMAC kickoff at Martin Luther in New Ulm, Minn.
