Gamebreakers Men DI College Oct 4-5

Ball-winners, try-scorers, tacklers, and leaders—here's our list of Gamebreakers from the past weekend of DIA and DIAA men's college action.

Anthony Adamcheck, Penn State

The Nittany Lion prop set the platform for a key win for PSU, 43-20 over St. Bonaventure. Adamcheck was a cinderblock upon which the Penn State backline built an impressive victory. (Pictured making a tackle at left, Chris Sustersic photo.)

Wesley Pan, Virginia Tech

The Hokies scrumhalf scored a try and converted that try and the other three Virginia Tech tries for a personal haul of 13 points in a 28-10 victory over NC State.

Luka Pavlakis, Illinois

The Illinois center scored the game-winner with 13 minutes to go, turning a 15-12 deficit against Wisconsin into a 17-15 victory in the Big Ten.

Jonathan Ahern, St. Josephs, and Steve Kowalski, Temple

St. Joseph’s played Temple in a game memorializing two players—one from each program—who have died in recent years. The game raised awareness for the Mark Dombroski Foundation and the Josias Sterling Aquatic Foundation. St. Joe’s won 32-5. Ahern was named the Mark Dombroski MVP for St. Joe’s, while Kowalski was named the Josias Sterling MVP for Temple.

Gordon Livermore, Navy

The US Naval Academy captain (pictured above, Colleen McCloskey photo) was his usual impressive self, playing a strong game at hooker as Navy beat Air Force in the annual Lt. Col. Shea Cup game.

Tosh Wilcox, BYU

The Cougars’ thundering flanker scored the opening try against Colorado State and followed that up with another one in the second half to lead BYU to a 42-10 victory.

Zack Harlan, IUPUI

The IUPUI prop was a dominant ballcarrier and scrummager as he helped his team beat Dayton 62-10. His punishing tackles forced several turnovers while he consistently crashed through tackles and opened up space for his supporting teammates. (Pictured at left carrying the ball. IUPUI rugby.)

Ian Newton, Utah State

The outside center scored three tries as Utah State defeated New Mexico 55-39.

Andrew Guerra, Notre Dame College

A workhorse at flanker for the Falcons, Guerra just pounded away all day on defense and winning rucks as NDC defeated West Point 22-17.

Josh Inglis, Kennesaw State

The KSU scrumhalf has been a stalwart for the program over the past four years. He is the captain, and has been a huge leader for the team as it has improved. He ran the attack nicely in Saturday’s victory over Kentucky.
