MILWAUKEE, Wis. – Less than 72 hours removed from helping Eureka extend its school-record regular-season win streak to 14 games, junior kicker Tanner Kuhne (Princeton, Ill./Princeton H.S.) and senior running back Le'Anthony Reasnover (Momence, Ill./Momence H.S.) have repeated as NACC Players of the Week, according to an announcement from league office on Tuesday morning.

Kuhne, the NACC Special Teams Player of the Week for the third time this season and the recipient of a conference player of the week award for the sixth time in his three-year career, was a valuable weapon in Eureka's 44-14 win at Concordia Chicago on Saturday. He went 5-for-5 on extra-point attempts and drilled a 27-yard field goal as time expired in the first half. Kuhne also averaged 46.0 yards on two punts and boomed a punt of 50 yards or more (53) for the second consecutive weekend that pinned the Cougars inside their own 20-yard line.

Reasnover is now a 10-time conference player of the week and a three-time weekly recipient from the NACC. He continued his solid play on Saturday, rushing for 201 yards on 30 carries - an average of 6.7 yards per carry - and tying his own single-game NACC record with five touchdowns in Eureka's win. His day included an 82-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.

Eureka will return home Saturday to host Benedictine in a 1 p.m. kickoff at McKinzie Field.
