Cumberland quarterback Reed Gurchiek was named the Mid-South Conference Offensive Player of the Week on Monday after posting 273 offensive yards and four touchdowns in CU’s 59-21 victory at Bluefield College.

The Mt. Juliet, Tenn., native completed 13-for-15 passes for 184 yards and three touchdowns, tossing TD throws of 47, 27 and 18 yards, all in the second quarter. He hit Mason Willis for a 47-yard catch-and-run and Michael Green on a 27-yard post pattern before finding Kentavious Eberhart for 18 yards just before intermission.

The senior QB also had a 10-yard TD run, as Cumberland scored 24 straight points in the second and third quarters to break open a seven-point game. He carried eight times for 89 yards and one score in the contest.

Gurchiek has completed 57 percent of his passes for 421 yards, four touchdowns and just one interception through four games this season as well as rushed for 181 yards and two scores.

Cumberland heads to the University of Pikeville this Saturday in the second of four straight road games for the club.
