Ritter Named Wealth Professionals/Gus Weber Player of the Week

SELISNGROVE, Pa. – At Friday’s ninth Quarterback Club Luncheon of the year, Susquehanna senior receiver Mike Ritter (Selinsgrove, Pa./Selinsgrove Area) was named the Wealth Professionals/Gus Weber Player of the Week for his performance in SU’s win over Franklin & Marshall one week ago.

Against the Diplomats, Ritter accounted for 168 of SU’s total offensive yards with 10 catches, two of which went for touchdowns.

Ritter, who returned for a fifth season with the Crusaders, leads the team in receiving through eight games with 43 catches for 610 yards and seven touchdowns. He is averaging better than 72 yards per game and averages 14.2 yards per reception.

Wealth Professionals of Shamokin has partnered with SU as the official sponsor of the Player of the Week Award. The sponsorship was spearheaded by Ken Shedleski, the owner and president of Wealth Professionals.

The award is also named in honor of late Susquehanna president Gustave Weber, who was SU’s president for more than 18 years who was also an avid Crusader athletics booster who actually served as head football coach for the final two games of the 1965 season.

The Crusaders play their final road game of 2012 when they travel to McDaniel on Saturday, Nov. 3 for a 1 p.m. kickoff.
