SEWANEE, Tenn. - Week 2 of the D3football.Com Team of the Week presented by Scoutware Full Contact Recruiting was released on Tuesday, and kicker Michael Jacobs was named to the team after his performance with the special teams on Saturday at Washington & Lee.

The junior went a perfect 3-for-3 on field goals, with two of them over the 40-yard mark, while tallying three extra points in Lexington, Va.

He connected on 20, 42 and 44 yards in field goals, with the 44-yard tying a career best set from last season.

The Germantown, Tenn. native is 4-for-5 on the 2017 campaign in field goals, and he is 13-for-16 in his career.

Jacobs joins William Phillips, who has been named to the Team of the Week by D3football.com this season. Phillips was selected as one of the two cornerbacks last week.

Jacobs and the rest of the Tigers continue on their three-game road trip with their second stop coming in Sherman, Texas, where the Purple and Gold will open up conference play with Austin College. Kickoff is slated for Saturday at 11 a.m. from Apple Stadium.
