ALFA Insurance® proudly recognizes Cody Pearcy as the Huntingdon College Student-Athlete of the Week

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Huntingdon receiver Cody Pearcy had a knack for finding the end zone in the first half against Hampden-Sydney on Saturday.

The senior scored three times on four catches in the first half to help spark the Hawks in a 34-27 win over the nationally ranked Tigers. The preseason All-American is this week’s ALFA Insurance® Student-Athlete of the Week.

Pearcy is the first recipient of the award.

“It’s a great honor to be the first person to receive this award,” Pearcy said. “It’s a good feeling when you work hard to accomplish goals. To be recognized with this award just adds to that.”

Pearcy’s first touchdown, a halfback pass from Trevor Manuel, put Huntingdon up 7-0 in the first four minutes of the game. Pearcy’s second touchdown, a 15-yard pass from Neal Posey, came midway through the second quarter. His third touchdown, a 49-yard strike from Posey, gave Huntingdon a 34-12 lead at the half.   

Pearcy’s contributions helped the Hawks pick up their first win over a Top-25 program.

“That just makes it even better,” Pearcy said. “That win was huge for our program. It was something we had never done before. I think it proved to us that if we play like we’re supposed to, anything is possible for us.”                              

ALFA is pleased to recognize Pearcy and all Huntingdon student-athletes for their hard work and accomplishments throughout the 2011-2012 season.
