Bethel players

take honors

WICHITA — Two Bethel College football players earned Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference player of the week honors for the week ending Sunday.

Camryn Harrison was named the offensive player of the week, while Joshua Seabolt was named defensive player of the week.

Harrison, a 5-9, 170-pound, junior running back from Austin had 18 carries for 279 yards and a touchdown in Saturday’s 46-45 overtime win over Ottawa.

He had a season-high for single-game rushing in the conference. He also helped lead Bethel to a school record 531 rushing yards in a single game.

It was the fifth-best rushing performance in the NAIA this season.

Seabolt is a 5-9, 210-pound sophomore linebacker from Cimarron. He had 10 solo tackles, an assisted tackle, a tackle for a loss and an interception. He also blocked an extra-point kick in overtime to give Bethel the win.

Bethel has earned KCAC weekly honors six times in football this season.

He is a state qualifier in both sports at Kapaun-Mt. Carmel. He is in the top 20 percent in his class academically.

"Isaiah will make an immediate impact on our programs," Bethel track coach Kelly Parsley said. "He is the best distance runner to sign with Bethel College in some time. I am looking forward to many Bethel College records being broken by this young man.”

Bartel intends to major in nursing at Bethel.
