Performer of the Week
Luke Washburn – Husson University
(Junior, DL – Litchfield, Maine)
Washburn recorded five tackles to go along with his two tackles for loss and a team-high two sacks as the Eagles smothered the Pioneers to the tune of just 43 yards of total offense, two net yards rushing, while allowing just 1-yard gained per play and four first downs. The junior defensive lineman was a part of an Eagle defense that forced one turnover, sacked the quarterback four times and held Alfred State to 1-for-12 on third down.
