extra point, then with just 37 seconds remaining, he blocked a 42 yard field goal attempt by Northern Illinois, giving the
Rockets a 20-19 victory over the Huskies.
For his efforts, Church was named MAC West Division Special Teams Player of the Week. He was also named the Defensive Back Performer of the Week by College Football Performance Awards.
