MONMOUTH, ILL. (10/04/2021) Fresh off their 42-0 win over Lawrence on Saturday, the Monmouth College Fighting Scots football team swept the Midwest Conference Player of the Week awards on Monday.

He finished the game with seven tackles, five solo, and accounted for nearly 40 lost yards by the Vikings.
