WHITTIER, Calif. – Senior wide out Brian Phelan (Chino Hills, Calif.) was recognized Tuesday by the conference office as the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) Football Offensive Athlete of the Week in the third week of voting.

Despite a 46-27 setback against Lewis & Clark, Phelan had a terrific day for the Poets. He hauled in six catches for 176 yards and registered two touchdowns. He averaged 29.3 yards per catch, and had a long reception of 73 yards. In addition, he also rushed one time for 31 yards and a score to give him 207 all-purpose yards in the contest.

Whittier has a bye week this Saturday and returns to competition next weekend, September 29 when they host Chapman University beginning at 7:00pm.
