ALFA Insurance® proudly recognizes Trevor Manuel as the Huntingdon College Student-Athlete of the Week

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Huntingdon running back Trevor Manuel wasn’t a one-man show in Saturday’s 38-20 win over 11th-ranked Wittenberg.

But Manuel definitely did his part as the Hawks knocked off a Top-15 team for the second time in three games. Manuel finished with 152 yards rushing, 236 all-purpose yards and four touchdowns to help beat the Tigers.

The Monroeville native is this week’s ALFA Insurance® Student-Athlete of the Week.

“It’s an honor to represent my team with this award,” Manuel said. “The guys on this team are working together and it takes all of us to be successful. I didn’t do anything by myself in that game. The success we had on offense was because the offensive line did its job and the receivers and backs did our jobs. It takes everyone to make it happen.”

Manuel scored his first touchdown on a 5-yard run in the first quarter. His next three touchdowns helped put the game away. Leading 14-13 with less than three minutes to play in the first half, Manuel scored twice in less than two minutes (on a 68-yard pass from Neal Posey and a 10-yard pass from Posey) to give Huntingdon a 28-13 lead at the half.

The fourth touchdown, a 24-yard run late in the third quarter, made it 35-13. The touchdown was Manuel’s 20th career rushing touchdown and tied Alex Baronich for the Huntingdon career record.

 ALFA is pleased to recognize Manuel and all Huntingdon student-athletes for their hard work and accomplishments throughout the 2011-2012 season.
