Hamilton College quarterback Kenny Gray '20 (Montgomery, N.Y./Valley Central HS) was selected the NESCAC Football Offensive Player of the Week on Sunday, Oct. 14.

The honor is the second of Gray's Hamilton career. He was the offensive player of the week on Oct. 16, 2016, in his fourth game for the Continentals.

Gray was 23 of 31 for a season-high 293 yards and tied a career-best with four touchdowns in Hamilton's 62-27 victory against Bowdoin College on Saturday. He also rushed for a career-high 87 yards on just eight carries. The 62 points scored by the Continentals was their highest total since they racked up a program-record 64 against Wesleyan University in 1986.

Gray ranks second in the conference with 97 completions and 10 touchdown passes, and he's third with 994 yards and 198.8 yards per game.

Hamilton (2-3 NESCAC) travels to Waterville, Maine, to take on winless Colby College on Saturday, Oct. 20 at 1 p.m.
