Spartan LB Jacob Adams named UAA Defensive Player of the Week
Spartan junior linebacker Jacob Adams was named UAA’s Defensive Player of the Week, the first of his career. He received this honor for his efforts in the Spartan’s 24-23 overtime win against Allegheny College during Homecoming weekend. In his efforts, Adams tallied a team-high 12 tackles and a forced fumble. The key play on Adams’s resume was his game-winning block of the Gator’s potential game-tying extra point. The play kept the Spartan’s 35-game regular season win streak alive and kept the team’s postseason prospects alive. Adams leads the team this season with 43 tackles and also has 2.5 tackles for loss, and a sack.
