Offensive Player of the Week: Tre Ford, Waterloo

The Waterloo Warriors and Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks went toe-to-toe in the latest Battle of Waterloo in what was one of the most entertaining university football games in recent memory. And while things didn't work out for the former, Tre Ford did all he could to give his team a fighting chance.

It is well known that Ford can do damage both in the air and on the ground, but he may have outdone himself in showing off his dual-threat capabilities on Thursday. The reigning OUA MVP stuffed the stat sheet against their crosstown rivals to the tune of 351 yards in the air (27-for-43), another 135 on the ground (16 attempts), and a combined five touchdowns for the black and gold.

After going down 12-0, Ford found Ternowski on a 52-yard connection early in the second quarter for his first passing touchdown, which he then followed up in the following quarter with a five-yard strike to Gordon Lam. From there, Ford showcased his proficiency on the ground, turning in a nine-yard score with four minutes to play to tie the game, a four-yard scamper to open up the scoring in the first overtime, and an eight-yard major to even things up at 47-apiece in the second extra frame.
