John Prather - Football
Senior wide receiver John Prather of the Carnegie Mellon University football team helped the Tartans to their best start since 2006 at 5-0 with a 45-14 road win over Bethany Saturday. The senior tied the school record for most receptions in a game, as he finished with 10 catches for 122 yards and added a career-best four touchdowns, all in the first half. His four touchdown catches gives him 22 for his career breaking a 50-year school-record mark of 21 held by Richard Bell (1964-67). It also marked Prather's eighth 100-yard career game and third this season.
