FSU's Bodrie Attains GLIAC Honor After Debut

Big Rapids, Mich. - Ferris State University freshman kicker Victor Bodrie (Northville) was rewarded for his performance in his collegiate debut as he has been tabbed as this week's Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Special Teams Player of the Week Award recipient.

Bodrie made the most of his collegiate debut this past Saturday (Sept. 17) night as he posted a school-record tying five field goals in a 35-13 win over previously unbeaten Ohio Dominican at FSU's Top Taggart Field. 

Bodrie made all five of his field goal attempts to match the school record held by his position coach, former Bulldog standout Doc Proctor, which was set against Northern Michigan in the 1998 campaign. 

Against Ohio Dominican, Bodrie converted on field goals of 25, 20, 22, 22 and 28 yards while helping Ferris establish a 28-7 lead early in the fourth quarter on his final make.  The 5-9, 175-pound rookie also added a pair of PAT kicks in the contest, which was the first action of his Bulldog career.

Bodrie and the Bulldogs will hit the road this Saturday (Sept. 24) as Ferris State travels to face the Tiffin Dragons in GLIAC action at TU's Frost-Kalnow Stadium in Tiffin, Ohio.  Kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m. (ET).

Saturday's broadcast can be heard live on the Bulldog Sports Network and Sunny 97.3 FM with Rob Bentley and Sandy Gholston calling the action.  The Meijer Bulldog Football Pregame Show starts at 1 p.m. (ET) and the entire broadcast is accessible at www.FerrisStateBulldogs.com.
