PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - North Dakota freshman wide receiver Greg Hardin has been named The Sports Network/Fathead.com FCS National Freshman of the Week after last Saturday's performance versus Northwestern State.

Harden hauled in six catches for 177 receiving yards and three touchdowns in North Dakota's 49-24 win over the Demons. The redshirt freshman finished with touchdown catches of 76, 52 and 33 yards. He already is one of four players in UND history to record a pair of 170-yard receiving games in their career.

Hardin joined North Dakota State running back D.J. McNorton, Georgia Southern cornerback Laron Scott and Murray State special teams performer Dontrell Johnson as the national player of the week honorees.
