Malik Gilmore
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. -- Albright's Malik Gilmore has been named to the Team of the Week the organization announced on Tuesday.

Gilmore had an outstanding day in helping lead Albright to a 38-13 victory over Lebanon Valley, which secured the Middle Atlantic Conference title for the Lions.

The junior threw a touchdown pass, caught a touchdown pass and also blocked two kicks leading the Lions to their first conference title since the 2008 season.

After Lebanon Valley took its only lead of the day early in the second quarter, Gilmore took over.

He took a lateral from quarterback Mike Knight and found Malik Jackson all alone for a 52-yard scoring play that put the Lions in front to stay.

On the Lions' next drive he hauled in a 27-yard touchdown pass from Knight to increase the Albright lead to 17-7.

Gilmore blocked a field goal attempt on the following possession that led to another Albright touchdown that gave the Lions a 24-7 lead at halftime.

He later blocked an extra point attempt in the fourth quarter.
