SACKVILLE, N.B. - Mount Allison Mounties quarterback Jakob Loucks has been named as the Week 1 Atlantic University Sport (AUS) football offensive player of the week for his performance this past weekend.

A second-year psychology student from Cornwall, Ont., Loucks threw three touchdowns in Mount Allison's 64-23 win Saturday over the Acadia Axemen in Sackville, N.B.

The 2016 U Sports rookie of the year, Loucks went 29 for 36 for 402 yards passing and had four carries for 53 yards rushing in the 2017 season opener.

The Mounties see action next this Friday when they visit the two-time defending champion St. FX X-Men in a rematch of the 2016 Subway AUS Loney Bowl.
