The fall season is nearing its midpoint and several former Progressland athletes are having success on the next level. Here's a closer look at how each is faring:
Jarrin Campman, Lycoming: Campman was named the Middle Atlantic Conference's Special Team's player of the week for his effort in the Warriors' 42-7 rout over FDU-Florham.
Campman averaged 45.3 yards on three punt returns, including a 59-yarder that went for a touchdown. The former Clearfield standout also finished the contest with six receptions for 73 yards and two other scores.
Lycoming (5-1) is off this weekend before hosting undefeated Widener on Oct. 20 for Homecoming.
Zack Czap, Lycoming: Czap was 6-for-6 on PATs, as the Warriors rolled past FDU-Florham, 42-7, on Saturday.
The former P-O kicker missed a 41-yard field goal attempt, but had a solid day punting. Czap booted four punts, including a 70-yarder, for a 44.5 yards per kick average.
Lycoming is 5-1 and hosts No. 17 Widener on Oct. 20 for Homecoming.
Parker Herrington, Air Force: The Falcons dropped a pivotal game in their quest for a third straight Commander-In-Chief Cup, as Navy knocked them off, 28-21 in overtime on Saturday.
Herrington missed a pair of field goal attempts, including a 51-yarder as time expired that would have given Air Force the win. The kick sailed wide left.
A former Clearfield standout, Herrington made all three of his PATs for the Falcons, who travel to Wyoming on Saturday.
Jesse Hoover, Lock Haven: Hoover, a former Curwensville receiver, snared three passes for 27 yards in the Eagles' 19-10 setback at Mercyhurst over the weekend.
Hoover's three catches tied him for the team-high, while his yardage was the second most. On the season, Hoover has six catches for 52 yards. He also had one carry for three yards in the loss to Mercyhurst.
Lock Haven (0-6) travels to California (Pa.) on Saturday.
Tyler Jenny, Lycoming: Jenny threw a career-high 4 touchdown passes as he guided Lycoming to a 42-7 win over FDU-Florham on Saturday.
The former Glendale quarterback was named to the Middle Atlantic Conference's Honor Roll for his performance in which he totaled 197 yards through the air. Jenny completed 17 of his 26 attempts to extend his school record for most consecutive games of completing at least 60 percent of his attempts (five).
Jenny also had a 1-yard plunge for another score to lift the Warriors to their fifth straight win.
Lycoming is back in action Oct. 20 when it tangles with undefeated Widener on Homecoming.
Michael John, Juniata: The Eagles return from a bye week to host Ursinus on Saturday for Homecoming.
Juniata previously fell, 40-20, to No. 16 Johns Hopkins on Sept. 29 in a contest that John averaged 59 yards on four kick returns.
A former P-O running back, John had a long return of 17 yards and lost four yards on two carries.
The Eagles dipped to 1-4 with the defeat.
David Kalgren, Oberlin: The Yeomen fell behind 20-0 on Saturday and never recovered in a 30-13 loss to Kenyon College.
Kalgren, a Curwensville alum, made nine stops with five of those being solo, while returning a kickoff for 17 yards.
Oberlin (1-4) hosts Denison on Saturday.
Derek Morgan, Slippery Rock: Morgan made a career-high 8 tackles in a 33-16 loss at No. 22-ranked IUP over the weekend.
The former Clearfield defensive back made six solo stops for the Rock, who dipped to 2-4 on the season.

Nick Redden, Duquesne: The Dukes had the week off after defeating rival Saint Francis (Pa.) by three on Sept. 29 for their fourth straight win of the season.
Redden, a former Clearfield center, and Duquesne (4-1) will travel to Central Connecticut State, which is 0-5 on the year.
Beau Swales, Lock Haven: Swales gained 20 yards on 10 carries for Lock Haven, which dropped a 19-10 decision at Mercyhurst on Saturday to fall to 0-6.
The former Clearfield running back had a long run of 7 in the contest, and has 48 yards now on the season.

A former P-O defensive end, Walker returned a fumble 80 yards for a touchdown on Sept. 29 against Lock Haven.
Mariah McDowell, Penn State Altoona: McDowell had 10 kills and 13 digs to lift the Lady Lions to their first home win in nearly a month with a sweep of Bible Baptist College on Friday.
