Following a career-best day, Morehead State senior quarterback Mark Pappas has earned the Pioneer Football League Offensive Player of the Week nod.

From Avon Lake, Ohio, Pappas threw a career-high five touchdowns in Morehead State's 62-9 victory against Point (Ga.), Saturday. He completed 29-of-45 passes for 286 yards in 41:17 of game time and had a reception on a batted pass that he carried for four yards and a first down to keep alive a scoring drive.

Pappas threw the game's first four touchdowns, connecting from 20, 11, 18 and 21 yards before later adding a third quarter touchdown throw with 3:43 remaining in the game to end his outing. He completed passes to 11 different receivers in the outing and connected on touchdown passes to four different receivers.

Pappas upped his career passing totals to 4,082 yards and 35 touchdowns.

The Eagles are on the road this week to face former PFL foe Austin Peay at 3 p.m. ET Saturday.
