    Good: Joshua Pena, RG

    For an offense that’s scored just 27 points against FBS competition this year, you’re hard-pressed to find many standouts. However, Joshua Pena has shown brightly in the ground game and deserves his praise.

    Great: Will Harbour, LB

    A forced fumble and a handful of pressures on the quarterback have pushed Will Harbour up the list of highlights for the Midshipmen. Harbour also leads the team with 20 tackles as he’s improved his all-around game this year.

    Grand: Jacob Busic, EDGE

    Leading the way with a sack and multiple QB hits this year, Jacob Busic has impressed most with his ability to always influence the opponent’s passing game. He has two pass breakups to go with his influential play.

    Wonderful: Rayuan Lane III, S

    The star of this defense through three games has been Rayuan Lane III. With two interceptions and six pass breakups, Lane has been a tormentor to opponents from a variety of alignments, notably flying around from free safety.
