Junior middle linebacker Greg Ditz, Willard, earned Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Defensive Player-of-the-Week honors for his performance against Bethany College, WV is Bluffton College's 35-14 victory in the 1999 opener last week. The 6-0 200 pound Ditz led BC with seven solo tackles, four assists and one pass break-up. He and his defensive mates held Bethany to just 52 yards rushing on the day and thrived in the 90 degree heat.
Ditz was eighth on the team in tackles in 1998 as a sophomore when he totalled 71 stops, two tackles for loss and two caused fumbles.
Bluffton travels to Hiram College this Saturday for a 1:30 matchup before hosting their first game of the season in Salzman Stadium on September 18 against Grove City College, PA.
