Goetz named HCAC Defensive Player of the Week


Bluffton College senior defensive back Shawn Goetz, a Lima Bath High School graduate, was named the Heartland College Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week last week for his efforts in Bluffton's 28-7 win over Franklin College.

Goetz intercepted two Franklin passes on back-to-back possessions in the second half, both deep in Bluffton territory. Shawn's first interception came in the endzone on Franklin's last possession of the third quarter, while his second pick came on Franklin's first possession of the fourth quarter as he picked off a pass at the BC 22 yard line, dragging his feet to stay in bounds. Goetz also had six solo tackles in the game and had two other pass breakups.

BC is now 7-2 with one regular season game remaining at Wilmington College this Saturday.
