MSFA Site | TU Honors Page | Gamble 95-Yard TD Return Highlight

FINDLAY, Ohio – The Mid-States Football Association announced its Mideast League Players of the Week on Monday morning, tabbing Taylor's Dovi Gamble as the MSFA Mideast League Special Teams Player of the Week.


Gamble had a busy afternoon in Taylor's 48-45 double overtime victory at Lindenwood, returning a kickoff 95 yards to the end zone, blocking two punts and intercepting a pass in the end zone to force a second overtime period.


The 95-yard touchdown return was one yard shy of matching the longest in Taylor history and gave the Trojans a 21-7 lead, while the two punts boosted Gamble's collegiate total to 13 blocked kicks in 30 games, with five coming this season.


Along with the game-changing impact plays on the TU special teams unit, Gamble added a tackle and had the game-saving interception from his cornerback position to assist the Trojan defense in the win.


The MSFA Special Teams Player-of-the-Week award is the sixth for Gamble in the past three seasons and marks the third weekly league honor for TU football this season, with Brandon Haan claiming the other two.


Gamble and the Trojans (4-6, 2-4 MSFA) will close their 2016 campaign on Saturday, November 12 at 1:00 pm, when they host Trinity International (3-7, 1-4 MSFA) for Senior Day inside Turner Stadium.

Record: 3-4 Home: 3-1 Away: 0-3 Neutral: 0-0 MSFA: 1-2
