Findlay, Ohio - Saint Xavier University sophomore wide receiver Bill McKeon (Joliet, Ill./Joliet Catholic) was named the Mid-States Football Association (MSFA) Mideast League Special Teams Player of the Week Monday for his performance this past Saturday in SXU's 41-3 victory over Trinity International University (Ill.). The Cougars have swept the honor in all three weeks this season with senior kicker Shane Longest (Wilmington, Ill./Wilmington) claiming the recognition the last two weeks.
McKeon helped spark 38 unanswered points by Saint Xavier in its big Saturday night win with a 78-yard kickoff return for a touchdown late in the first quarter to break a 3-3 tie. He also caught seven passes for 51 yards and completed a 42-yard pass in the game. He finished the game with two kickoff returns for 107 yards in addition to his offensive numbers.
Saint Xavier (4-0 overall) jumps into its MSFA slate for the first time this season with a road game against No. 17 ranked Walsh University (Ohio). The game is scheduled for a 12 p.m. start (eastern time) Saturday at Fawcett Stadium in Canton, Ohio.Click here to go to the MSFA Mideast League Player of the Week page
