MINNEAPOLIS – First-Year Albright football cornerback Chris Holbrook earned another weekly honor as he was named to the Team of the Week on Tuesday morning.

The Team of the Week is a weekly honor roll, started in 1999. It recognizes the top individual performance at each position.

Holbrook earned a spot on the national team at the return spot following his historic performance against Wilkes last Saturday. Holbrook became the first player in program history to run two kickoffs back for a touchdown in a single-game. He ran the game’s opening kickoff 91-yards for the score to give Albright the early 6-0 lead. Holbrook then returned a kickoff 93-yards for a score in the second quarter just before halftime. In four returns, he totaled 243 yards. Holbrook became the first Lion to return a kickoff back for a touchdown in three seasons.

This is the first time he has earned a weekly award from in his career, and is the first Lion to garner a spot on the Team of the Week since Alec Vignola did in September 2017.

The Lions will return to action on Saturday, October 19th when they will travel to face Stevenson for a 1 p.m. showdown in MAC play.
