October 6, 2009, Greencastle, Ind. —  Following Saturday's 29-27 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference win over preseason favorite Millsaps, DePauw claimed all three SCAC Football Player of the Week honors.

He also broke the DePauw career record for touchdown passes bringing his total to 57. Dick's 57 career touchdown passes currently ranks sixth in conference history.
