Philadelphia, Pa. - Old Dominion quarterback Taylor Heinicke (Atlanta, Ga.) has been named The Sports Network FCS National Offensive Player of the Week for the season-opening games which ended Sept. 2nd.

Old Dominion totaled 723 yards in its 57-23 win over Duquesne, and Heinicke accounted for 530 yards on his own. After trailing 20-10 at halftime, the Monarchs offense exploded for 47 second-half points.

Heinicke broke personal and school game-highs with 492 passing yards and 41 completions, helping the Monarchs tie a program mark for points in a game. Last year's runner-up for the Jerry Rice Award ended the game with four touchdown passes and 38 rushing yards.

It is Heinicke's third national award from The Sports Network having earned National Rookie of the Week accolades twice last season following performances against Richmond and Norfolk State in the first round of the FCS playoffs.

Earlier on Monday, Heinicke was named the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Offenisve Player of the Week, the fourth time the Monarch signal caller earned a weekly award from the conference office.

The ODU Football Monarchs (1-0) have their first road contest of the 2012 campaign on Saturday, September 8th against Hampton at Armstrong Stadium. Kick-off is at 6 p.m.
