Grand Forks, N.D. - The national awards quite haven't caught up to the 12 career-high passes he hauled in on Saturday night in the 40-34 victory over Montana, but junior Greg Hardin's (Bellevue, Neb.) weekly award count is quickly adding up.

Late Monday, both Hardin and senior quarterback Braden Hanson (Charlotte, N.c.) were named a College Sporting News All-Star, joining three other FCS players (wide receiver Richard Sincere of Sam Houston State, defensive back Aaron Roane of Richmond and Stony Brook placekicker Wesley Skiffington) to earn that distinction.

And, Hardin's individual accolades grew by one more early Tuesday when the College Sports Journal/GameWornUniforms.com named him as one of the organization's five National Players of the Week.

In case you missed it, Hardin broke the UND and Big Sky records with 333 receiving yards, which is the fourth-highest total in FCS history. He also hauled in three touchdowns to push his season total to 12 - a mark that leads the Big Sky and ranks second in the FCS.

Hanson went 42-for-61 through the air against the Griz, racking up UND and Big Sky records as well with 660 passing yards. He connected on five touchdowns passes. The 660 yards passing is the third-highest total in FCS history.
