LANCASTER, PA -- Johns Hopkins junior place-kicker Alex Lachman (Livingston, NJ/Livingston) has been selected as the Centennial Conference's Special Teams Player of the Week for his efforts in last Saturday's 40-27 win at Muhlenberg. This is the first time this season and the fifth time in his career that Lachman has earned CC Special Teams Player of the Week honors.

Lachman hit field goals from 34 and 25 yards out and nailed four of five extra points to total 10 points in the 13-point win against the two-time defending Centennial Conference champion Mules. He also stepped in to punt early in the third quarter and had a 33-yard punt on his only attempt of the game.

Lachman is 18-of-19 on extra points and 6-of-8 on field goals through five games. He leads all Centennial Conference place-kickers in points per game (7.2), total points (36) and field goals (6). He is also tied for the league-lead in extra-point percentage (.947) and ranks second in field goal percentage (.750).

In addition to his exploits in the Johns Hopkins record book, he is also moving his way up on several lists in the Centennial Conference record book. He currently ranks eighth in league history in career points by a kicker (143) and 10th in career field goals (24). In addition, he ranks as the league's all-time leader in career field goal percentage (.774) among players with 30 or more career attempts.

Johns Hopkins is currently 4-1 overall and 3-0 in the Centennial Conference. The Blue Jays will look for their fifth straight win and 10th in their last 11 regular season games on Saturday, October 10 when they travel to Carlisle, Pennsylvania for a showdown with Dickinson. The Red Devils are currently 5-0 overall and 3-0 in the Centennial.
