WAUKESHA, Wis. - The Northern Athletics Conference has announced its weekly awards winners and Benedictine's John Borsellino has been tabbed as the conference Special Teams Player of the Week.
Borsellino was a key piece in helping Benedictine to a 32-28 comeback win on homecoming. Borsellino scored three touchdowns, one of which was on special teams. Borsellino returned a free kick following a safety 77 yards for a touchdown early in the fourth quarter. The touchdown completed a rally from down 28-7, handing Benedictine the lead for the first time in the game.
The senior, who was named an AFCA All-American as an all-purpose player last year, tallied 162 yards on five kick returns and amassed 324 all purpose yards.
Homecoming brings out the best in Borsellino. Last season in front of a huge crowd, Borsellino scored a pair of touchdowns in the third quarter with Benedictine trailing Aurora 16-0 at the half and 19-6 before an 84-yard kick return.
Borsellino's award hands Benedictine back-to-back weeks with an award winner. Last week, Ben Lockton earned the Defensive Player of the Week.
