Football: Dear, Stodola Named Final Weekly Award Winners Of Season
Concordia Chicago's C.J. Dear and Wisconsin Lutheran's Josh Stodola
have been named the Northern Athletics Conference Defensive and
Offensive Football Student-Athletes of the Week for events of Nov.
Dear's (St. Louis, Mo.) two interceptions helped the Cougars (10-0,
7-0 NAC) build a big first-half lead in the 62-26 victory over
Maranatha in the regular-season finale. The senior defensive back
returned his first pick 13 yards, and on the next drive, returned his
second 34 yards for a touchdown.
Stodola (Denmark, Wis.) hauled in 10 receptions for 134 yards and a
touchdown in the Warriors' final game on Saturday. The senior wide
receiver's 64-yard touchdown catch was his 11th of the season, which
set a single-season school-record for receiving touchdowns at
Wisconsin Lutheran (7-3, 5-2 NAC).
