September 28, 2015 - kicker Steven O'Block named GLVC Special Teams Player of the Week
"for his effort in the Bearcats' 41-23 victory at William Jewell College on Saturday. It is the first conference weekly honor in O'Block's collegiate career. O'Block had a perfect afternoon kicking the football, converting all five of his extra point attempts while drilling a pair of field goals in helping the Bearcats put up 41 first-half points against the Cardinals. He booted a 31-yard field goal late in the first quarter which was set up by an interception from sophomore linebacker Kyle Kirkpatrick (Bethalto, IL/Civic Memorial) that was returned deep into William Jewell territory. Then with just 1:30 left until halftime, O'Block split the uprights from 38 yards out to cap the largest first-half scoring outburst for McKendree during the 2015 regular season. For the season, O'Block has made 11-of-14 point after attempts while making all three of his field goal attempts. Dating back to last season, O'Block has converted 11 of his last 12 field goal tries for McKendree. Through three games in 2015, he is second in the GLVC in kick scoring, averaging 6.7 points per contest. O'Block is just one of two kickers in the league who is perfect in field goal attempts." - Bearcats
