PORTLAND  – With fall sports in full swing, the 99th episode of GNAC Insider, hosted by Rob Lowery, aired live at 7 p.m. Pacific on Tuesday night. The show featured Western Oregon football wide receiver Paul Revis, Concordia women’s soccer head coach Grant Landy, and Simon Fraser volleyball middle blocker Tessa May.

Revis has helped the Western Oregon football team go 2-2 so far in 2016, including a wild win last week against Humboldt State. Revis, one of the most dynamic offensive players in the conference, is the all-time GNAC leader in punt return touchdowns and ranks second in the conference this year in all-purpose yards. The junior is the conference’s leading punt returner (203 yards), ranks second in pass receptions (22), has carried the ball three times and even has recorded a pass attempt. Western Oregon has a crucial conference game this week, hosting Azusa Pacific in a battle of the top two teams in the conference standings.

Landy is in his 21st season as a coach at Concordia and has a career record of 348-66-26, which includes 19 years as an NAIA member. Those 348 wins are the most of any active GNAC head coach. In 2013, Landy guided the Cavaliers to their first NAIA National Championship in program history. This season, the he led his team to a seven-match winning streak to start the season. It was the third time in his storied career that Landy had led a team to a 7-0-0 start. This week, the Cavaliers have a crucial match as they travel to Western Washington. Concordia is currently atop the conference standings with two wins and a tie, but Western Washington was the coaches’ preseason pick to win the conference and has lived up to it with seven consecutive wins.

May has played a important roll as the middle blocker in Simon Fraser’s excelent start to the 2016 season. Simon Fraser was named Red Lion Team of the Week two weeks ago after the team’s first win over Western Oregon since joining the GNAC. That win was part of an eight-match winning streak for the Clan, which is now in a three-way tie for second place in the GNAC. Simon Fraser is averaging 1.95 blocks per set and May has played a big part in that with her team-best 43 blocks this season. May also ranks in the top 10 individually in the conference hitting percentage at .296 as a sophomore.
