UNI’s McElvain earns MVFC newcomer honor

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) — Two weeks in and Will McElvain already looks like a veteran. After nearly knocking off a ranked Iowa State team, McElvain led the Panthers to a dominant win over Southern Utah, and on Sunday earned Missouri Valley Football Conference Newcomer of the Week honors.

UNI scored the first 34 points in a 34-14 win over the Thunderbirds. McElvain finished the game with 262 yards on a 17-of-25 passing performance. That included three touchdown strikes that all came before the halftime break.

The redshirt freshman has 490 passing yards through two games this season. It’s his first player of the week honor.
