Ryan Landwehr Named HCAC Offensive Player of the Week

225Landwehr3TERRE HAUTE, IND. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology senior quarterback Ryan Landwehr (Tipp City, Ohio/Tippecanoe) was named Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Week for the third time this season, in results released by the league office today.

Landwehr passed for two touchdowns and rushed for two more in a 42-14 win at Anderson University on Saturday.  He finished 26-39 through the air for 309 yards and two touchdowns, and rushed for 67 yards and two more scores.

Landwehr helped guide the Rose-Hulman offense to 588 yards in 106 plays, marking the third-most total offense yards in a game in Fightin' Engineer history.  He has completed 211-330 passes for 2,227 yards and 16 touchdowns this season, and also rushed for 400 yards and nine touchdowns.

Landwehr set a new single-season school record for pass completions in Saturday's game at Anderson.  He needs 27 passing yards on Saturday at Earlham to move into third place on the single-season yardage list, and would need 336 yards to move into second place. Landwehr could also set a new single-season record for total offense with 195 yards at Earlham.

The Fightin' Engineers (6-3, 6-1 HCAC) would earn at least a share of their first conference championship since 1988 with a win over Earlham on Saturday.  Rose-Hulman would earn its first ever trip to the NCAA Division III Playoffs with a win at Earlham, combined with a loss by Franklin at Hanover on Saturday.
