Winning Frontier Conference awards has become old hat for Austin Dodge.

For the seventh time in his career, the Skyview graduate was honored as the Frontier Conference offensive player of the week after the quarterback led Southern Oregon to a 51-14 win over Menlo.

Dodge completed 23 of 35 passes for 321 yards and four touchdowns. It was his 25th career outing with over 300 passing yards, his 13th with at least four TD passes, and his six with at least four TD passes and no interceptions. The senior gave way to his backup midway through the third quarter.

Dodge and his teammates will encounter a stiffer test Saturday. The Raiders will host Carroll College, which has won 13 of the past 14 Frontier Conference titles and is currently ranked No. 2 in the NAIA national poll.
