Kyler is exhibiting soft hands and quick feet for Tennessee


Greg Kyler is one of seven reasons Tennessee is so strong at wide receiver.

The redshirt freshman out of Poly, possibly the fastest player on the Volunteers, caught five passes for 95 yards against Mississippi State, three for first downs. He has seven catches for 110 yards for the Vols, who are seven deep at wide receiver. There's not a senior in the bunch.

"Kyler can pressure the corners with his speed," said receivers coach Pat Washington. "If you sit on his routes, he'll run right by you. And when he runs by you, I don't think you can catch him."

* Sophomore fullback Chris Cortina (Cardinal Gibbons) scored on a 1-yard dive to give Ohio Wesleyan a 13-0 halftime lead en route to a 20-0 decision over Denison. Cortina finished with 51 yards on 11 carries.

* In Lehigh's 37-35 win over Columbia, junior defensive end David Sunderland (Mount St. Joseph) had eight tackles and two pass breakups, including a deflection leading to an interception that set up the field goal that gave the Engineers a 24-21 third-quarter lead.

* Wesley tailback Brandon Steinheim (Chesapeake) was named ECAC South Region Player of the Week after rushing for 130 yards and two touchdowns in the 62-0 romp past Curry. He had 151 yards in yesterday's 24-21 loss to Salisbury State, the seventh straight time Steinheim has exceeded 100 yards rushing for the Wolverines (6-1). He now has 1,110 career yards to rank as Wesley's second all-time leading rusher.

Wesley went in to the game ranked second in Division III in total offense and gained 489 yards against the Sea Gulls (5-1). Linebacker Nate Casella (Wilde Lake) is one of Wesley's top defenders.

* Sophomore Kevin Morgan missed York's loss to Catholic because of an injury, but still leads the team in scoring with 15 points on seven goals and an assist.
