October 30, 2000

Senior defensive back Shawn Goetz (Lima/Bath) has been named the Heartland Conference Defensive Player of the Week for his efforts in Bluffton's 24-14 win at Franklin College Saturday.

Goetz intercepted two Franklin passes and blocked a field goal, all coming in the second half, as the Bluffton defense shut down Franklin in the fourth quarter and the offense scored 17 unanswered points to overcome a 14-7 deficit. Goetz ended the game with five tackles and two broken up passes. He returned his interceptions 44 yards.

This marks the second HCAC Player of the Week honor for Goetz this season and the third of his career.
