LITZENBERGER HONORED

Thursday, December 27, 2012 by The Press in Sports

Junior WR Chris Litzenberger of the Muhlenberg football team was named to the Centennial Conference Academic Honor Roll.

To be named, a student-athlete must be a sophomore or higher in class standing, carry a cumulative grade point average of 3.40 or higher and be a starter or key reserve on his team.

An accounting major, Litzenberger appeared in every game, including two starts, and totaled 10 receptions for 91 yards and a TD. The TD came against Dickinson en route to a 61-21 victory on the road.

Litzenberger also served as the team's long snapper and was a key to the Mules leading the CC in net punting. He received the coaches award for "Big Play Offense" following a victory over Juniata and was also honored as a "Dig In," or unsung contributor, following a game against Johns Hopkins.

Muhlenberg finished its 2012 campaign with an 8-3 record overall, its best since 2008, and a 7-2 record in the CC, good for second place in the conference behind No. 15 Johns Hopkins. The Mules received a postseason berth to play in the ECAC South Atlantic Bowl, where they fell to Delaware Valley, 24-21.
