Chris Lorditch is the Harvard COOP athlete of the week for the week ending Nov. 22. Lorditch caught the game-winning touchdown with 1:32 left to play in the 126th edition of "The Game" against archrival Yale. Lorditch cut across the middle of the field and then swiftly past two defenders up the seam as quarterback Collier Winters lofted a perfect pass over the inside coverage which Lorditch took in stride and waltzed into the endzone to complete the Crimson's stunning comeback to put Harvard ahead 14-10. The junior wide receiver out of Chalfont, Pa., finished the contest with 104 yards on five catches with the one score. Lorditch and Winters also connected for the longest play of the game, a 46-yard reception in the second quarter. Lorditch closed out the 2009-10 campaign as Harvard's leading receiver with 545 yards on 30 receptions with five touchdowns.
