Bernard McDondle honored as NFFCC Player of the Week


DURANGO, Colo. (November 24, 2015) – Colorado State University-Pueblo football running back Bernard McDondle (So., Littleton, Colo.) Tuesday became the third member of the Pack to earn National Football Foundation-Colorado Chapter Player of the Week honors this season. 

The honor is the first for McDondle and fifth for the ThunderWolves, as senior defensive end Morgan Fox (Fountain, Colo.) was recognized Nov. 10 and senior running back Cameron McDondle (Littleton, Colo.) has been honored three times, including the two weeks prior to Fox.

B. McDondle filled in as the main back after big brother C. McDondle left the game in the first quarter due to injury and carried the ball 28 times for 187 yards and three touchdowns in the NCAA Division II Playoffs First Round win against UIndy. McDondle scored all three touchdowns in the second quarter to move the Pack's lead from 3-0 to 24-0 before the ThunderWolves took a 24-7 lead into the half. He averaged 6.7 yards per carry and currently leads the nation in rushing yards per carry. His scores went for 11-, 37- and 8-yards.

No. 4 CSU-Pueblo is set to travel for a NCAA Division II Playoff game for the first time in program history, as the Pack battle No. 9 Midwestern State University Saturday in round two of the playoffs. Game time is set for 12 p.m. MST in Wichita Falls, Texas.
