TACOMA, Washington – Continuing a common theme through the past several years, the 2018 Puget Sound football team's passing offense is elite in the NCAA D-III ranks.

Through the first three games of the season, the Loggers' 398 passing yards per game ranks third in NCAA D-III. What's more, Puget Sound's touchdown to interception ratio (14:1) also ranks third in the division.

Across all NCAA football levels, Puget Sound is one of only two teams with two student-athletes averaging at least 115 receiving yards per game. AJ Johnson leads the Northwest Conference with 122.3 receiving yards per game, and Jewell Day is second with 117.3.

Puget Sound has received all three NWC Student-Athlete of the Week (offense) honors so far this season. Johnson, Day, and quarterback Murdock Rutledge each earned the award.
