WAUKESHA, Wis. (WLCSports.com) - Wisconsin Lutheran College junior JD Leisemann (Fall River, Wis./Fall River) has been named the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Football Defensive Student-Athlete of the Week for the events of October 10-16, as selected by the league's sports information directors.
Leisemann, who was on the field for nearly every defensive play, had a monster game on Saturday for the Warriors in a 26-14 Lutheran Bowl win over Concordia Wisconsin. Four of the junior defensive lineman's six tackles were for a loss, including three sacks. He also blocked a Falcons' punt and recovered a fumble for WLC, which forced three turnovers and had seven sacks on the afternoon.
This is the second career weekly award for Leisemann and the second by a Warrior this season.
Leisemann and the Warriors (2-4, 2-1 NACC) travel to Lakeland (4-2, 2-0 NACC) on Saturday for a 1:00 p.m. showdown with the Muskies at Sheboygan North High School's Urban Field. Live audio, stats, and video will be available for the game at WLCSports.com.
