Gabriel becomes fourth UCF player to earn Walter Camp National Player of the Week
ORLANDO, FLORIDA – The Walter Camp Football Foundation announced the FBS National Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week, presented by Generation UCAN on Sunday afternoon and UCF’s Dillon Gabriel was named the National Offensive Player of the Week.
In his third collegiate game, Gabriel led UCF to a 45-27 victory over Stanford on Saturday, throwing for 347 yards and four touchdowns to four different Knight receivers.
UCF improved to 3-0 with the win over the Cardinal, the Knights’ 28th win in their last 29 games.
Gabriel becomes the fourth UCF player to earn Walter Camp National Player of the Week honors since 2004 and the first since McKenzie Milton was named Offensive Player of the Week after throwing four touchdowns in a win over Pittsburgh last season.
This is the 16th year that the Walter Camp Football Foundation is honoring one offensive and one defensive player as its national Football Bowl Subdivision player of the week during the regular season.
Recipients are selected by a panel of national media members and administered by the Foundation.
Gabriel was also honored as the College Sports Madness National Offensive Player of the Week for his performance on Saturday.
UCF will continue action next weekend when the Knights travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Panthers, Saturday at 3:30 p.m. on ABC.
