Hartwick College junior wide receiver Noah Koreman earned Empire 8 Conference co-Offensive Player of the Week honors Sunday.

Koreman shared the honor with Ithaca College's Thomas Bergerstock, who rushed 32 times for 268 yards and five touchdowns in the Bombers' 69-42 victory over visiting Hartwick on Saturday.

In the same game, Koreman caught 16 passes for 250 yards and three scores. He caught touchdown passes of 70, 5 and 27 yards from Hawks quarterback Jason Boltus, who threw for 460 yards.

Koreman accumulated more yards, touchdowns and catches in Saturday's game than he had in his first two seasons at Hartwick.

The 250 receiving yards Koreman had against Ithaca represent the third-highest output in a game in the country. Teammate Jack Phelan holds the top spot after gaining 289 receiving yards in Hartwick's season-opening, 63-37 victory over Western New England.

Bruh scored his first two goals of the season in O-State's 5-1 victory over Oswego on Saturday.
